Results for the week ending 22 June
Tuesday’s Golf Croquet was a lively affair with all the courts full. We welcomed back Mal Smith, who has been away on holiday for some time. Neville Spry has made a big effort in the last three weeks winning three games in a row. Also winning three games were Bill Scott and John MacCullagh. While one of our newer members, Jenny Job, had two wins.
Saturday’s Aussie Croquet saw 24 players come out and brave the minus two degree temperatures. Only two players won all their games that day. Those players were Merv Langfield and Harley Stewart.
One of the best games on Saturday was the match between Harley Stewart and Ray Burridge who defeated Bob Murray and his partner Doreen Rogers.
Bob’s ball was knocked away on the last hoop by Ray Burridge, giving Harley time to get through the last hoop and get close to the finishing peg. Bob was again knocked away and missed the peg twice before Ray Burridge finished the game with a straight shot at the pin.
