Other Social events are held over the season, a regular match again Maldon Croquet Club for the honours of the perpetual trophy and other events, as an example. A lot of fun had, playing the hoops – come along and join in the fun, give it a go, and see what makes this game so great!
MARYBOROUGH VRI CROQUET CLUB - 2019 Annual Sports report
Our club of 24 members experienced a very busy year with many internal and external competitions. We also conducted two ‘Come and Try’ days as well as hosting numerous croquet sessions for the local schools.
Internally we conducted our annual ‘Battle of the Sexes’, this year being won by the men, our annual Australia Day competition, with medals being awarded to Sefa Byrne, Alf Button, Samantha Harvison, and Graeme Jones. An inaugural ‘Twisted Mallet’ competition was held, the winner being Shirley Button. Our annual hoop competition, which is the average highest score for all games over the year was won by Graeme Jones.
Our ‘Club Championships’ this year were conducted in two divisions. Division one was won by Graeme Jones and division two by Ephraim Pukeroa. We held the normal two challenges with the Maldon club as well as one with the Ringwood club, Maryborough emerging victorious on all three occasions. We entered a division one team in the Northern District Croquet Association pennant competition and our team of Martin Mackay and Graeme Jones were successful with a narrow victory.
Sadly, we had to say goodbye to three of our prominent members during the year. Our president Nola O’Donoghue who moved to Frankston and subsequently transferred to the Frankston Croquet Club and Cyril and Glad Collyer who after 20 years with us found it time to hang up their mallets.
