Covid-19 restrictions meant that Victorian-based members were banned from golf croquet club play last Thursday morning, June 3, but we had ten NSW players playing doubles and a single. At the end of play there were two players with three wins. Our winner for the day was Dave Hocking who had a nett hoop score of +13 and runner up was Fiona Larcombe with +6. James Gunn scored a hoop in one, and Fiona scored two.

The Goulburn Valley Croquet Association has seven newly qualified Golf Croquet and four newly qualified Association Croquet coaches in our region. Local clubs appreciate the efforts of the Victorian Croquet Association’s State Coordinator of Coaching Ruth Duffy and Rich River’s Kenn Boal who ran the training courses at Rich River on Monday this week.

Tuesday’s weather was cold and wet, but we still had ten brave souls at golf croquet. We were forced off the court a couple of times during showers but persisted to finish three games. We had two three-game winners. The day’s winner was Fiona Larcombe who had a nett hoop score of +9. Runner up was Helen Brierley with +5 nett hoops. Leon Koch scored a hoop in one.

There were ten players for Association Croquet on Wednesday morning, when Kenn Boal recommenced his AC lessons.  Kenn has some promising beginners and is reigniting interest in the original form of croquet. Lessons start at 9.00am and run for about an hour.  These lessons will continue for the next few weeks.

Visitors and new members are always welcome to join golf croquet on Tuesdays and Thursdays or association croquet on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Be there at 9am for a 9.30am hit-off. Enquiries can be made to Marjorie Grant on 5480 9985 or Helen on 0428 307 200.
