Lawrence croquet

With the restrictions being lifted in regional areas, we are able to play with four persons per court last week, which resulted in a lot of catch up and much chit chat and laughter could be heard across the courts.

The weather has been excellent with the sun drying the courts early, making them quite fast, as the balls are not gathering a lot of moisture.


Tuesday highlights: jump shots – Bon, Yvonne, Nancy and Karen, one each; hoop to hoop – Cheryl x 2 (These were Cheryl’s first hoop to hoop – well done for a relatively new player); in-off – Bon and Cheryl, one each (another first for Cheryl), Carole x 2.

Thursday highlights: hoop to hoop – Carole and Karen, one each, Nancy x 2; in-off – Karen, Yvonne and Carole, one each; jump shots – Karen and Nancy, one each.

Sunday social game had 10 on the courts and welcomed a new player Dale, who played a very strategic jump shot in his second game – well done!

Sunday highlights: jump shots – Ann x 3, Nancy and Dale, one each; hoop to hoop – Daphne and Nancy, one each; in-off – Joy x 1.

Croquet is played each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday commencing at 8.30am, at the Lawrence Golf and Sports Club. For further information contact Carole Radford on 0427 783 330.
