Croquet and golf – the match is made

FOR the first time in a long time Leongatha Croquet Club has submitted a golf pennant team alongside the association team.
We will play 12 games against eight other competing clubs within Gippsland, culminating in finals early December.
Leongatha triumphed in its first golf match against Phillip Island this week winning by three hoops on a countback.
Congratulations to Merry Dyson-Holland, Betty Strong, Garry Shandley and Nanette Meredith.
The association was beaten two games to one by Sale.
Well done to Sandra Birch and Pam Deacon.
Three members from the Leongatha and Korumburra clubs are travelling to Bendigo to celebrate the Bendigo Club’s 100th year of croquet.
Sandra Birch (Leongatha) and Ruth Stevenson (Korumburra) are playing in the association tournament over Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd August.
Thelma Arnup (Leongatha) is sharing her expertise as one of the referees during the two day tournament.
The club welcomes any interested people to come and try out our great game.
Club days are Wednesday and Saturday at 1pm.
Flat soled shoes are a must and use of equipment and coaching are free.
