The Greek Open Association Croquet (AC) Tournament 2014 in October was again a big succes. Eighteen players played for the honor to become the winner of this Greek Open 2014.
The tournament starts one day later because not all players arrived in time. In Greece raged on the Monday before the start of the tournament a terrible storm and planes were not able to land. With one day delay we started and while the storm and rain scourged Corfu on Monday and Tuesday, on Wednesday it was beautiful wheater and this continued the whole week.
Everybody enjoyed the good atmosphere at the lawns, the boattrip, the good food and drinks. And as always the service, rooms and environment of the Kontokoli Bay Hotel was excellent.
Chris Robberts won the main event, The Handicap Singles, in an exciting finale against Derek Toms. Richard and Diana Stevens won the Doubles and won the Consulation Game. Nico Vogels won the Golg Croquet Weekend Tournament.
The week ends with the awards ceremony and a Gala Dinner in the Taverna O Milos, a beautiful situated restaurant with a great view over the see to the Marina of Corfu. We were again very pleased to welcome everybody from England for this wonderful event and hope to see them again next year.
