The Oakeshott Cup - East London

The headmaster of George Randell High School, East London,came across it when he was going through a cupboard sorting out what he calls "obsolete cups" which are to be put on display.
It is a beautiful, hallmarked silver cup about 33cms high on its stand, with a lid surmounted by three croquet mallets over a ball.

It is engraved "The Oakeshott Cup presented to our President A.C.Oakeshott by the members of the Selborne Croquet Club for open competition , in appreciation of his keen interest in the game."
It is dated 1930.
The cup was played for regularly from 1932, the winners being: 1932, Mrs Wessels, 1933, MrsPreston; 1934, Mrs Currie; 1935 , Mrs Mills; 1936, Mrs May Fleischer;1937 , Mrs Moore (Durban); 1938, Miss M Paterson (Port Elizabeth); 1939, Mrs Preston; 1940, Mrs Hamlyn; and in 1941, 43, 44 and 45 (it does not apprea to have been played for in 1942), Mrs A Clark.

If one can go by the badges on the cup 1945 was the last year it was competed for.

Mr Denyer has no idea how the cup came into the possession of George Randell High School. Daily Dispatch sports editor, Percy Owen, had never heard of the Oakeshott cup for croquet, though he knew about the Oakeshott cup for second league rugby in this part of the world.

Mr Denyer would welcome information about the cup. With all those prize winners, and the fact that A. C Oakeshott was well known in this town, somebody must know about it.

He can be phoned at George Randell school during school hours (7.30 am to 1 pm). his telephone number is .....
Or a phone call can be put through to The Chiel at the Daily Dispatch.....26141
