Millenium Cup win at YCF Short Lawn Tournament

5 clubs took part and good weather throughout the day made it a joy to play. York Club were excellent hosts and organisers and every thing went to plan. The winners of the Millennium Cup were Shefferley (an amalgamated club of Sheffield and Beverley Players) and the Armada Plate was won by Adrian Simmerson

Inaugural Club Internal Leagues 

We launched the Club's first ever internal competitions - a handicap play AC league and a handicap GC league. 

The handicap AC competition was won by Maggie, and the handicap GC league was won by Dennis.

Eugene competes at the Association Croquet World Championships in Florida!

Eugene competed at the 2016 Association Croquet World Championships, held at the National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach, Florida in April 2016. He had to come through 11 rounds of qualifying to clinch the final qualifying place for the 80 player main event. It was a fantastic opportunity for Eugene to test himself against the top players in the world. Sadly, Eugene did not qualify from his blocks for the main last-32 knockout, but he improved his performance in the Plate - the consolation event.

Also see his shared Google photo album for some pictures and videos of the event.
