Glasgow Open 2017

22-23 April 2017, Knightswood

The Glasgow Open took place at Knightswood, the new home of Glasgow Croquet Club, over the weekend of 22-23 April. Sadly this year the entries were reduced, with only 5 entered. Campbell and Jane came and swelled the numbers on Saturday but unfortunately could not manage the Sunday due to a commitment at Balgreen. The weather was kind sunny dry and fairly warm in fact two players were complaining of sunburn on their unprotected heads on Sunday morning.

John Campbell, a relatively high handicapper from Argyll (Tarbert), came and joined the event in order to learn more about advanced rules. He coped well managing to win two games.

Campbell Morrison won all three of his matches on Saturday, just scraping by in the match against John Surgenor +1 on time. He would probably have won the event had he been able to compete on the Sunday but as his commitment to Balgreen took precedence this let John retain the trophy having 4 wins from 5 games.
