Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

Plim­mer­ton Cro­quet Club play­ers are on a win­ning roll.

Plim­mer­ton beat Waikanae 6-3 in the Cas­tle Cup re­cently.

Eric Cas­tle, and his late wife Ur­sula, set up the com­pe­ti­tion and pre­sented the tro­phy in 1998 and it’s now an an­nual fix­ture.

The Plim­mer­ton play­ers were Wayne Gair (Ti­tahi Bay), Wendy Bet­teridge (Cam­borne), Carolyn Rait, Chris­tine and John de Roo (all Whitby) and Robin Chester­field (Pare­mata).

Mean­while, at the Dunedin mas­ters tour­na­ment, all Plim­mer­ton’s golf cro­quet play­ers won medals.

In the dou­bles, Bob and Anne McKen­zie (Cam­borne) won gold, and Tom and Bev­er­ley Ber­ry­man ( Ti­tahi Bay), and Jo Bray ( Pa­pakowhai, teamed with a nonPlim­mer­ton player) won sil­ver.

In the sin­gles, Bob McKen­zie won gold, Anne McKen­zie sil­ver and Tom Ber­ry­man bronze.

In the Wellington re­gion Arthur Ross play-off, Carolyn Rait (Whitby) per­formed very well against Greg Bryant, the world No 6, and even­tu­ally placed third.

Plim­mer­ton play­ers also won through in all sec­tions in the Wellington golf cro­quet in­ter­club com­pe­ti­tions.

Tom and Bev­er­ley Ber­ry­man were over­all win­ners and sec­tion win­ners in­cluded Wayne Gair and Dianne McDon­ald (Ti­tahi Bay) and Chris­tine de Roo (Whitby) with Claire Roberts (Cam­bourne).

The other par­tic­i­pat­ing clubs were Waikanae, Para­pa­raumu, Wellington, Khan­dal­lah, Waimarie and Wainuiomata.

Plim­mer­ton club pres­i­dent Wayne Gair is or­gan­is­ing rounds of ‘‘Cropool’’ for a club day on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 22, 1pm.

It’s ba­si­cally pool played on a lawn with cro­quet mal­lets and balls.
