Club pres­i­dent Ruth Duffy said on be­half of all mem­bers of Corowa Civic Cro­quet Club Inc, the club wished to thank all mem­bers for their ser­vice as a Com­mit­tee of Man­age­ment Mem­ber.

“Vol­un­teer con­tri­bu­tion of time and or­gan­i­sa­tional skills is rarely recog­nised or ac­knowl­edged, so we thank you,” she said.

Ruth said the new com­mit­tee would ac­tively seek grants to achieve ‘A’ grade con­di­tion of its courts, along with equip­ment and travel grants.

The achieve­ment would re­sult in the club be­ing able to host cro­quet tour­na­ments on their home turf.

The club is cur­rently hold­ing its first hand­i­cap in club tour­na­ment, which has come about due to the im­proved cro­quet skills of mem­bers.

Ruth said the club wished to thank Michael Nixon for tak­ing on the enor­mous role of car­ing for the courts.

The club is al­ways look­ing for new mem­bers of any age, with its old­est player 82 years of age.

“Cro­quet is very much a skill-based game and can be played un­til the end of life be­cause it is a low-im­pact sport,” Ruth said.

“We wel­come peo­ple to come along and give the sport a go.”
