CROQUET NEWS

On Saturday the Golf Croquet players had a competion against Busselton, which they won narrowly. There was some great Croquet played with Ron Vincent and Alan Simmonds from Busselton being the best doubles players on the day,  followed by Karen Martin and Brian Uren from Dunsborough a very close second, with the difference between them being only 1 hoop.

A great day was had by all despite the rain.

Congratulations to Raelene Willis who played in the AC doubles tournament at Bunbury Central on March 2ndand was runner up.

This last weekend David Bell competed in the Div 3 Singles at Halls Head. David had a frustrating time and things didn’t go his way, but he won one game.

Later this week 10 golf players, and some non playing partners, head off to Norfolk Island to compete in the Convict’s Cup Social Croquet Tournament. There will be 5 half days of croquet mixed in with tours and social gatherings. Each accommodation unit has their own vehicle. The speed limit is only 40kmh, and you have to give way to the cows! Hope you all have a wonderful time, and we look forward to your report for the newsletter.
