The biggest challenge last Tuesday for croquet players was the heat with some players not able to play all games.
The consistent players across the three games of golf croquet were John H Brown, Bruce Field, Bill Scott and Ken Styles with a score of three out of three. They were followed by Kathleen Broderick, Colleen Leibich, Joan Littlejohn, Neville Morrison and Carol Slattery, with two wins each across the three games. Congratulations to all – it’s a pleasure to see some strategic thinking happening on all courts.
Despite the cooler weather last Saturday, fewer members than usual came along. There were some in depth discussions between partners as to how to approach the hoop and knock the opposition out, with some hilarious results and laughter.
Alex Todd, with the assistance of his partners, was the only player to win all three games. Several players won two of their matches: John and Cherylin Cole, Lorna Field, Joan Littlejohn, Kevin Rubie, Libby Smart, Lorraine Todd and Barry White. Well done teams. Happy birthday to Jill Rubie.
