Taupo¯ club has first win

Taupo Times - - OUT & ABOUT - STEPH RANGI

They’ve never com­peted in an in­ter­club com­pe­ti­tion be­fore but the Taupo¯ Cro­quet Club has now shown what they are made of.

Taupo¯ golf cro­quet play­ers com­peted in the first round of the Bay of Plenty In­ter­club League in Ro­torua last Tues­day and won.

Their four per­son team Noe­line Fage, Martin Bond, Aart van Saar­loss, and Peter Fage played the Tau­ranga Club for their first ever in­ter­club Golf Cro­quet com­pe­ti­tion.

The match con­sisted of eight dou­bles and eight sin­gles games.

‘‘The re­sult was an eight-all tie on games won but the count back on hoops scored was 99 to 90 in our favour,’’ Taupo¯ Cro­quet Club pres­i­dent, Peter Fage, said.

‘‘Congratulations to our team who man­aged to keep their nerves in check and their fo­cus to achieve this out­come.’’

Fage said the re­cent coach­ing day that three of the team’s mem­bers had with Cro­quet New Zealand’s na­tional coach, Greg Bryant, may have helped them out.

It has also given them an ad­van­tage for fu­ture games in the next lot of com­pe­ti­tions.

The next round will be played against the Katikati Club with sub­se­quent matches over con­sec­u­tive months against Whakatane, Mount Maun­ganui, and Ro­torua.

The Ro­torua Club is host­ing the first four rounds with the fi­nal match against Ro­torua in Taupo¯ .
