Sweden wins 19:33 points

Ever since the 2006 defeat in Hamburg, the German team was looking forward for a second edition of a test match against Sweden's team: Although some efforts were made to do better this time, e.g. a beer breakfast with rock music on Sunday morning's famous fish market in Hamburg, the Swedes made it again: They won 33 of the 52 games played over weekend. Congratulations !

Swedens team captain Simon Carlsson was the top player of the tournament, he won all of his single games in AC and in GC. Once again the Hamburg Club members accomodated all of the six Swedish players, they were also offered plenty of sun, fast lawns and good food so that none of them regretted the 10 1/2 hours ride down south.

For Germany 11 players gave their best in a test match that consisted of a mixture of GC and AC as well as doubles and singles. Having fun together was certainly the main objective of this test match and that was undoubtedly achived. Also both teams wanted to give new players the opportunity to "sniff in" into the spirit of international croquet.

Since there are acitivities in Sweden to have a club with at least two lawns Simon Carlsson invited the hosting German team to have the next test match in Sweden. He presented the Hamburg club a map of Sweden that shows all clubs and lawns in the country. Thank you very much, your invitation was much appreciated in Hamburg & elsewhere.

Because of the always fair, friendly and mostly relaxed spirit amongst the teams both of them are looking forward for the next meeting, hopefully under Sweden bright midnight sun ...
