0 Scottish Croquet Association v
Greyhound racing made a welcome return to Shawtield Stadium in Glasgow this month. The racing licence was transterred to the new owners in time tor a re-opening on 11 June, and they were rewarded with a large crowd. Regulars deprived of top-class action since last October’s (then apparently iinal) closedown, will Iind a handsomely re-turbished bar and restaurant, as well as an upgraded racing circuit; as one punter remarked on opening night. it makes losing money almost a pleasure! See
Croquet Association Glasgow Green East. 10am. An international challenge match in which the home team take on their English counterparts. Croquet is burdened with class-associations and a certain joke value. but it is a highly tactical, very competitive game at this level. The object is to play the balls through 12 hoops and a central peg. while trying to put opponents at the maximum disadvantage in the process. with the first side to reach 26 points winning. Admission free.

0 Edinburgh Eagles v Musselburgh Magnums Saughton Astro-Turf Complex. Stevenson Drive. Edinburgh. 2pm. £1 (50p). Eagles produced a stronger early challenge to Glasgow than expected. and should be too strong for the currently troubled Magnums.

0 Lothian Chieftains v Ayr Burners Creamery Park. Bathgate. 2pm.
0 Glasgow Lions v Manchester All Stars Helenvale Park. Tollcross. Glasgow. 2pm. Glasgow desperately need home points if they are to stave off relegation. in what has proved a tough Budweiser baptism. PREMIER DIVISION
