Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

Fe­bru­ary has been a busy month for the Plim­mer­ton Cro­quet Club, capped off by its John Burke Tour­na­ment.

The competition was held on Fe­bru­ary 12, and won by Wayne Gair in the se­nior sec­tion, and Doug Van Belle in the ju­niors. John Burke has spon­sored the event for the past 12 years and was on hand to present prizes.

Ear­lier in the month Plim­mer­ton was rep­re­sented by Pat Wil­son and Patsy Wil­liamson, and Kelvin Wat­son and Ross Wil­liamson, in the in­au­gu­ral Cher­ring­ton Tro­phy golf cro­quet event, played be­tween Para­pa­raumu, Waikanae and Plim­mer­ton clubs. Plim­mer­ton and Para- pa­raumu each won six games but on count­back Para­pa­raumu won the tro­phy by two hoops.

At the Welling­ton Cro­quet As­so­ci­a­tion cham­pi­onships, Chris Cam­bourn won the 0-3 bisque sin­gles., Wayne Gair was run­ner-up in the 4-9 bisque sin­gles and with Dianne McDon­ald won the ju­nior dou­bles.
