Much hoopla as club opens sea­son

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

A NEW sea­son is un­der­way at the East Fre­man­tle Cro­quet Club, which is invit­ing lo­cals to have some fun with their sport.

The club cel­e­brated with a small party ear­lier this month, invit­ing East Fre­man­tle Mayor Jim O’Neill to take the first hoop.

East Fre­man­tle Cro­quet Club’s Kerry Loane said it was a great so­cial sport that was easy to learn.

“When at­tempt­ing to il­lus­trate the ap­peal of cro­quet, there could be no bet­ter player to con­sult than our long­est-serv­ing mem­ber,” she said.

“Is­abel Clu­cas be­gan play­ing with the club in 1971 when she was 40 and had but one mes­sage: ‘I should have started ear­lier!’ ”
