Get­ting into the swing of cro­quet

The Free Press (Corowa) - - SPORT -

A suc­cess­ful so­cial day of golf cro­quet was held at Corowa Civic Cro­quet Club Inc. on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 28.

There were 38 play­ers, made up from 11 out of the 12 NEDCA re­gion, who were in at­ten­dance for a day of skill, tac­tics, learn­ing and friend­ship.

The Play­ers Hand­i­caps’ ranged from 14-3, which makes for in­ter­est­ing play and a steep learn­ing curve for many.

Corowa Civic Cro­quet Club Pres­i­dent Ruth Duffy said they liked to mix up their so­cial day with the Hi-Lo pair­ing for two of the four games so that the skilled play­ers can share knowl­edge of the game with the less ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers in a buddy sys­tem.

The play­ers ben­e­fited from the steps made by Fo­cus En­gi­neer­ing Corowa, which the club re­cently pur­chased thanks to the small com­mu­nity grant from Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil Corowa.

Win­ners of the day were Bruce Blay (Be- nalla) win­ning first place, four games and +16 ag­gre­gate points and Lynette Evans (Beech­worth) in com­ing sec­ond, win­ning four games and +8 ag­gre­gate points.

Ruth said hold­ing th­ese events ben­e­fits Corowa by bring­ing in a num­ber of vis­i­tors to the town and re­gion for the day.

The com­mit­tee would like to thank all the club mem­bers for the com­mit­ment to putting th­ese events to­gether.

The club would also like to thank Craig and his staff at IGA Corowa for his support and help.

The new steps made by Fo­cus En­gi­neer­ing Corowa gained praise from the play­ers in their de­sign and aes­thet­ics.

Cro­quet is a great sport for any age and the club loves to wel­come new mem­bers.

Mem­bers can be seen play­ing on Tues­days, Fri­days and Satur­days from 8am and Wed­nes­days from 12.30pm.

Watch out for twi­light times as the days warm up.
