Woking won in the Longman Cup First Round against Guildford & Godalming Croquet CLub on 12th May 2018
On a gray, cool morning which turned into a rainy afternoon, Woking had a convincing win over their hosts. In the morning session Elizabeth McKenzie-Gray and Max Byfield won their doubles while Rod Steel and Colin Groves lost and won their singles respectively leaving the lunchtime scores at a precarious 2-1.
The afternoon was a different story though, Colin, Elizabeth, Max and Rod all winning their singles giving Woking a 6-1 victory.
Without doubt the outstanding performance was by Max who, in winning his match 26-0 took his second ball from first hoop to rover with the use of just 1 bisque to set up the break and then qualify for a CA Bronze Merit Award.
Woking now meet REigate in the second round.
