Morning Coffee: 9W Coverage, Western Regionals Revisited, Lawn Bowling and More

Turn into Croquet Network Friday through Sunday and I should have daily coverage of the USCA Nine-Wicket National Championship which will again be held here in Kansas City (Shawnee, KS). Friday kicks off with open singles play and Saturday has two flights of doubles play. If the format follows last years, the singles championship game will happen at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. Doubles playoffs are Sunday morning and generally conclude by 1:00 p.m.

Tega Cay Club Opens New Court -- The Lake Wylie Pilot reports that the South Carolina based Tega Cay Club (106 members) opened a new court this past weekend. TCCC founder and president Tom Anderson:

“From our humble beginnings on a soccer field over a year ago to this day today, we’ve proven that a group of like-minded, motivated individuals can come together and get a dream accomplished.”

USCA Mid-Atlantic / Northeast Regional Results -- Chris Patmore took the championship flight and Chris Glowacki won first flight. Full results here.

Lawn Bowling vs Croquet -- Bob Alman has an in-depth article on the opportunities and pitfalls regarding court sharing between croquet and lawn bowling clubs as the lead story on Croquet World Online.

Genie Hendry sent me a collection from the USCA Western Regionals -- You will find a few rare photos of me playing in first flight. Captions will all be updated soon.

MacRob Photos -- Adrian Wadley (croquetonfilm.com) posted this large collection of excellent MacRob photos a while back.

BBC Sport posted a short piece on Tony Le Moignan winning the Australian Open. If the BBC actually would give the sport serious coverage, that would be quite a boost. Sort of makes sense, considering Great Britain's continuing dominance of the sport.
