Advantage, Caversham


Caversham were very well represented at a recent meeting of the Southern Croquet Federation’s Advantage League.

Not only were chairman Charles Briggs and myself looking after the club’s interests but both Brian (left) and Carol Jamieson took the trouble to break off their holiday in sunny Spain to join the Zoom meeting.

That gave us a larger representation than any other club in the League.

The presentation was skilfully chaired by Advantage League manager Roy Tillcock, a member of the Ryde club.

It was just a pity that he didn’t stage it exactly a year earlier, before the inaugural season of the new-look League!

Hopefully the decision to slightly amend the algorithm which governs the starting scores will give our lower handicap players like Brian a more level playing field in the 2022 season.

Caversham didn’t have a problem with any of the issues raised at the presentation — or last season — because our team was so expertly managed by Carol.
