The Northland Age - - Sport Local Classified­s -

Kaitaia Cro­quet Club mem­bers have en­joyed suc­cess at var­i­ous tour­na­ments across the prov­ince in re­cent weeks.

Firstly, Shirley Reed and Lyn Ru­pa­pera rep­re­sented the club in the Lanna Mor­gan Memo­rial Tour­na­ment played at Kens­ing­ton on Sat­ur­day, March 2.

After win­ning pool play, the duo pro­gressed to a fi­nal play­off in the hand­i­cap dou­bles sec­tion where they came up against the Waipu com­bi­na­tion of Wil­liam Wright and his grand­son Jack. It was a hard fought bat­tle with the Kaitaia duo ced­ing 5 free shots to their Waipu ri­vals be­fore even­tu­ally claim­ing vic­tory on the de­cid­ing 13th hoop.

The fol­low­ing day, Kaitaia’s Joe Carter won all his games to emerge as a clear win­ner of the as­so­ci­a­tion sin­gles divi­sion of the Lanna Mor­gan Memo­rial. The tour­na­ment was hosted by the Whangarei Cro­quet Club.
