On Friday 6th August 2021, the Broadwas team of Ian Dampney, Stuart Smith, Jim Dryden and John Guy set off to travel to Eardisley to play in the West Midlands Level Play Golf Croquet League. In order to keep their slim hopes of the league title alive, the team needed a big win – at least 12 games out of the 18 available needed to be won to earn bonus points to keep the pressure on the league leaders Kenilworth.
Broadwas roared out of the blocks, and after the first 2 rounds of singles had burst into a 7 – 1 lead. Broadwas kept up the pressure and continued to ease ahead, finally winning the day by 14 games to 4 and earning a bonus point for a ‘big win’ as well as another bonus point for winning away from home.
Broadwas remain undefeated but behind Kenilworth in the league as Kenilworth have collected more bonus points. The final game of the season is on August 26th, when Broadwas will need another big win to keep up the pressure on the leaders.
Special mention should go to Ian Dampney who won all of his games during the day, and also to Jim Dryden who acquitted himself well on his debut.
