2019 Greenwich Invitational
June 29–30, Greenwich, Connecticut
The 2019 Greenwich Invitational took place Saturday and Sunday, June 29 and 30. All play took place at the club’s home court in Bruce Park, which the town recently resurfaced with bentgrass sod. Eight players played in two serpentine-seeded four-person blocks on Saturday, and on Sunday repeated that format but with the second and third seeded players in the block switching blocks. Because we didn’t have enough time using two courts to offer a full eight player block, we wanted players to play as many different people as possible. There was no playoff — we added the results from the two days together, which saw second seed Arthur Olsen (-0.5) going undefeated to win the event.
Special thanks to Greenwich Croquet Club members Lee Kennedy, Bill Duncan, Bill Miller, Ed and Hilary Michaels for their wonderful hospitality and hard work to make the event a success. The catering was superb and the weather cooperated nicely!
