Cro­quet club at ca­pac­ity

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - GAZETTE SPORT -

War­ragul Cro­quet Club’s needs for an ad­di­tional court came to the fore fol­low­ing play on Satur­day.

The club ex­pe­ri­enced a big turn out, and as such the club could not ac­com­mo­date ev­ery­one on its court or in its club house.

Club trea­surer Mary Corn­wall said Satur­day’s play demon­strated how des­per­ate the club is to gain an ex­tra court and ex­tend its club house.

“We had to slide in a half court and still had peo­ple wait­ing on the side­lines for some­one to come off so they could jump on,” she said.

“Our club house was that ‘chock­ers’ that we had to have peo­ple sit­ting in the back stalls.

“Be­ing Gipp­s­land pen­nant cham­pi­ons in 2018 has brought on quite some in­ter­est, but un­for­tu­nately we are not able to ac­com­mo­date the in­ter­est.

“So we are in a catch 22, want­ing more mem­bers but at the same time want­ing more play­ing and so­cial­is­ing space.”
