Club member Eugene took part in the International Player Development Squad (IPDS) Mentored Match Weekend over 16/17 May, playing against other members of the IPDS, members of the Great Britain squad and a team of the best UK-based female AC players (who were looking to warm up ahead of the Women's AC World Championship in July). There was a strong field of players present, ranging from the UK no.17 (world no. 34) downwards, with 14 of the 16 players being minus handicap players.
Eugene was also in action at the AC Inter-Counties Croquet Championship over the late May bank holiday weekend, representing Middlesex in Division 1.
