Played at Cairnlea Croquet Centre, Victoria.
Round 1 defeated Brad Maguire 26 -18, 26 -3.
Round 2 lost to Robert Fletcher 1 – 26tp, 26 – 0, 0 – 26tp.
Was a good battle against Robert, narrowly missing out on a triple peel in game 2. Made a mistake after hitting the lift in the third game which Robert then capitalised on by hitting across court to his ball at hoop 1.
Thrilled to get a game of Robert (currently #4 in the world) and will do wonders for confidence in future games.
Now playing off a handicap of 1.
Mens Plate. The excitement of getting a game off Robert must have been too much as had a very average showing in the plate winning only 3 of 7 games.
