Glasgow Open 2018

21-22 April 2018, Knightswood

James Hopgood and Alistair MalcolmThe Glasgow Open took place at Knightswood, the home of Glasgow Croquet Club, in a weekend with contrasting weather conditions. The Saturday with continuous sun had temperatures in excess of 20°C and the Sunday brought us back to normality with rain and cooler temperatures.  The entries were up this year with nine players entered. The lawns were heavy and slow and most games went to time with the exception of games involving James Hopgood who completed all games in time including an excellent standard triple to beat Lorna Dewar.   

James won all of his matches and entertained the other players with some excellent play involving repeated attempts to complete triples.  Alistair Malcolm also played well over the weekend with 3 wins from four games.
