Helen, John claim title

April 14, 2018

Deniliquin Croquet Club’s Doubles Championship was played on Sunday, with 16 players competing on what was a warm day.

After strong competition Helen Moye and John James were the winners for 2018 and Gwen Pearn and Colin Campbell were the runners-up.

Darren McLoughlin, John Tainsh and Peter Whittakers competed in the Victorian Golf Croquet Association Region Singles Championships at Shepparton last week.

Darren McLoughlin was the only Deni player to win his section and will now go on to Cairnlea to play in the final.

Players are reminded that afternoon play will start this Sunday at 12.30pm for 1pm start. Wednesdays will remain 8.30am for 9am start.

The AGM will be held on Sunday, April 22 at the clubhouse. All members are encouraged to attend. A barbecue will be held at noon ahead of the meeting with croquet play to follow.

Nine players represented the Deni club at the Numurkah social day on Tuesday. There were 56 players from 10 clubs competing on the day.

The Deni players did quite well with Dot Murphy winning the first group and Dors Peterson runner-up in the second group.

A beautiful afternoon tea completed a very successful social day.

On a hot Wednesday morning 13 players braved the heat for croquet.

However some players pulled out after two games due to the heat and because of the long day at Numurkah.

Mary James and Brad Fawns won the day with equal scores of 22 hoops.

Brad Fawns had two jump shots while Andy Davis and Peter Whittakers each had one.

Each Wednesday the club will be playing with handicaps to enable those who wish to consider playing pennant to learn how to take extra shots.
