Croquet week ending 3rd November
It was an interesting start to the week at Tuesday’s golf croquet with all courts being used and a follow on as well. The total participants numbered 36. How we survived with only six courts is still a mystery.
Some of the closest games were between Mal Smith and John Cole with 7, who defeated Neville Spry and Marjorie Styles with 6; Colleen Liebich and Merv Langfield with 7, who defeated Robin Pols and Lorraine Todd with 6; Jill Rubie and Carol Slattery with 7, who defeated Joan Littlejohn and Dorothea Croker with 6 and in the last game of the day between Evelyn Mahlo and Alec Todd with 7, who defeated Merv Langfield and Robin Pols with 6.
The winners of three games on Saturday in the Aussie croquet were Bruce Field, Bill Scott, Bob Murray and Kevin Rubie.
Saturday’s Aussie croquet saw a close game between Bob Murray and Elizabeth McLean who defeated Veva MacCullagh and Colleen Clifton 14 to 13. The winners of their three games were John Allegri, Bob Murray and Tony Thomson.
