Yesterday's match - July 19 - saw the Swindon golf croquet team break even with Broadwas after a tight battle. 

In regular croquet, the player who maneuvers the ball into the peg, will be crowned the winner. In the game of golf croquet, that Swindon and Broadwas played, the goal is to strike the ball into the last hoop - number 7. 

Swindon managed to hold a narrow 7 - 6 lead by lunchtime, but Broadwas fought back in the early afternoon to level the playing field.

The Swindon player Garry Douel was said to be on impressive form all day. The club said he held his nerve, to comfortably win his final singles. 

Garry and the rest of the team secured a 10 - 10 tie by the end of the afternoon rounds.
