Croquet Champs

The Edgartown Croquet Club held its annual Woody Tarlow Hi-Lo Doubles Tournament last week. Players included rank beginners and 25-year veterans.

Winners of the tournament were the West Tisbury team of Bill Blakesley and Sandy Turner. In third place at the end of bloc play, Saturday, Blakesley and Turner won the semi final and final games on Sunday to claim the crowns.

Perennial champions John Schott and Joan Yale were upset by Gerry McCaulley and Ed Rose, who finished second. John and Joan placed third.

The Edgartown Croquet Club is the only USCA registered club on the Island and is open to all players of 6-wicket croquet and those who want to learn. Often compared to chess on a lawn, 6-wicket croquet knows no limitations of age or gender. The club plays regularly during the season and offers lessons on the Edgartown School Croquet lawn behind the baseball diamond, Saturdays, beginning at 9:00 am.
