THE third South West Federation (SWF) Open Individual Golf Croquet event took place at Nailsea Croquet Club.

This year entries were down with players from only four clubs, Broadwas, Kington Langley, Lansdown and Nailsea for the three competitions, level play, handicap singles and handicap doubles.

In the level play singles, 16 year-old Ryan Cabble (handicap 1, Nailsea) won block A with three wins and Peter Dyke (3, Nailsea) won block B also with three wins. Both players were on good form and in an exciting final Peter took the early lead, but Ryan fought back to win 7-6.

In the handicap event Margaret Lewis (7, Broadwas) won block A with three wins and Carl Jones (8, Nailsea) won block B with two wins and a draw. The handicap doubles was run as a reverse Swiss. The final between Ian and Elaine Morrison (Broadwas) and Jim Gregory and Polly Reynolds (Nailsea) was won by Jim and Polly completing a clean sweep for the Nailsea players.
