Florida Regional - Oct 7-9 2021


Paul Bennett

The USCA 2021 Florida Regional Nine Wicket Tournament was held early in October on the “Palm Courts” in the back of the National Croquet Center. The event was hosted by the National Croquet Club over three days with both championship and first flights. The turnout was fairly light due to short event notice and the ongoing covid situation. However, a sufficient number of players stepped forward to bring a competitive and challenging atmosphere in both the singles and doubles competition.

Thursday was doubles play all day. A round robin established the playoffs for Saturday morning in the two flights. The team of Tom Tribby and Priscilla Flowers got the championship flight bye and waited to play Gail Warlick and Linda Grady after they overcame a large deficit to beat John Warlick and Marianne Davidson. Tom and Priscilla remained consistent and outlasted Gail and Linda for the championship flight win. First flight doubles was hard fought with the team of Clint Fowlkes and Caryl Firth besting
Nanci Hunt and Lou Tyrrell in the flight finals.

Friday was all singles play with competitive battles on the four longer grass “Palm Courts”. Flight play sorted out the Saturday semi and final games. Linda Grady won first flight in a close battle with Priscilla Flowers on Saturday. Tom Tribby fought off John Warlick in the rain delayed Championship final that ended on Sunday.

Steadfast support from USCA representatives Ursula Peck and Johnny Mitchell was greatly appreciated.

Thursday and Friday lunches at the NCC were provided by the fantastic SandyJames catering crew. Friday evening players enjoyed an early dinner on the outside patio at The Raindancer Steakhouse in West Palm Beach. Beautiful trophies created by George Fiegel were well received by all players. Congrats to all participants!
