CROQUET Rich River

The Riverine Herald - - SPORT -

RICH River Croquet Club is back in full swing fol­low­ing the Christ­mas New Year break.

In golf croquet on Tuesday of this week 20 mem­bers en­joyed three games of dou­bles and were joined by two vis­i­tors.

The only player to win all three games was Russ Smyth who had a nett score of +15 hoops.

Run­ner-up was Carol Becker who had two wins and a nett score of +8 hoops. Russ also scored a hoop in one. On Wednesday, six mem­bers played as­so­ci­a­tion croquet sin­gles.

The win­ner on the day was Mar­jorie Grant who played very strongly. Jim Gunn was the run­ner-up. The club is al­ways happy to wel­come new mem­bers and vis­i­tors to golf croquet on Tuesday and Thursday morn­ings.

For the re­main­der of Jan­uary and for the month of Fe­bru­ary golf croquet play­ers will need to be at the club by 8am to reg­is­ter for an 8.30am start.

The ear­lier start should en­able games to be com­pleted be­fore the heat builds up too much.

It was with great sad­ness that the club heard of the re­cent pass­ing of long-time mem­ber John Richards.

John was a re­spected club mem­ber who con­trib­uted to the growth of as­so­ci­a­tion croquet at Rich River and he will be sadly missed by those who knew him.

The club’s thoughts and con­do­lences go to John's fam­ily.
