Nailsea & District Croquet Club held a one-ball competition recently.
Players take just onne ball through the hoops, instead of two, and 16 took part in handicap play.
Sandra Morgan made her one-ball debut and won two out of three games in block one, while Tony Hinchcliffe topped block two despite giving away plenty of bisques due to his low handicap.
Mary Barnes won block three after a close finish with John Hancock and will now meet Terry Young, who came out on top in block four, in the other semi-final.
Eight others played under advanced play rules, with Brian Roynon winning all of his games in block A ahead of David Hunt, while Brian McAusland and Hinchcliffe won two games each in block B.
That meant the players with the lowest handicaps went through, with Roynon to meet Hinchcliffe in one semi-final, as Hunt and McAusland battle it out in the other.
