Harewood Croquet Tournament 2014

Perhaps a rather grand way of saying a very pleasant afternoon in the company of good friends hitting a few balls through a few hoops on some rather rough grass. After the inaugural ‘tournament’ two years ago, we decided to organise another get together, with some amazing weather provided for us. After the preliminary eight group rounds and two semi-finals, there was some genuine competition in the final before Milly managed to steal the title from a very on-form Rod.

Jubilee croquet

A rather late post, but a few pics from the alternative to the Jubilee celebrations in the Valley – a quick round of relatively crazy croquet at Harewood, won in fine style by Steve.
