Rich River croquet

Rich River

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.
