Cred­itable sec­ond at Na­tion­als

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

WA per­formed well at the 2016 ACA Golf Cro­quet Na­tion­als, claim­ing sec­ond prize in the In­ter­state Shield com­pe­ti­tion at the Como Cro­quet Club on Sun­day.

Five days of com­pe­ti­tion at the club cul­mi­nated with WA de­feat­ing New South Wales nine matches to two, to be the run­ners-up to Vic­to­ria.

Como Cro­quet Club pres­i­dent Alan Sands said sec­ond place was a great re­sult for WA, as the level of com­pe­ti­tion had been high.

“We also hosted the men’s and women’s sin­gles and the ex­pe­ri­ence has been great for the club,” he said.

“It’s an op­por­tu­nity to spruce up the club and build on what we have.

“Our play­ers have been able to view some re­ally good play and see the skill and tac­tics that they would not nor­mally be able to see.”

Queens­land play­ers Rose­mary New­sham and Peter Ni­chol­son.
