Lewis Palmer PROFILE
LewisPalmer.jpg

I am 58 years old and work as a CFO for an insulation company in Trosa which is one hour south of Stockholm on Sweden’s beautiful east coast. I moved to Sweden in 2007 to be with my girlfriend Monica and we have just celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary. Apart from croquet I enjoy playing tennis, sailing and blowing my trumpet in the local brass band.

I grew up in England where I first starting playing association croquet in 1985 and spent numerous years playing on the “croquet circuit” with the likes of Robert Fulford, Chris Clarke and David Maugham.  I starting playing golf croquet about 5 years ago and managed to get to the semi-final of the European Championships in my first serious competition. Since then I have won the Swedish Championship twice.
