The Ballina Cherry Street Croquet Club has had a busy and successful membership despite COVID-19 restrictions, as well as a six-week time out for lawn maintenance.
During October, David Scott and Ray Chapman competed at Pine Rivers Club in Brisbane in the Queensland State Ricochet Championship, finishing top of their block winning all five games.
Unfortunately, the final game was halted by a storm, with the sudden finish going to their opponents.
Greg Porter played in the Queensland State Golf Championship division two, and won all five games on the first day, but then two of five the second day with an overall score of seven from 10.
In a great achievement, David Scott won the NSW Beryl Chambers Memorial State Association Handicap finals at Tempe, Sydney.
David is now to play in the State Golf Selectors Invitation Tournament, to be held in Newcastle this weekend.
‘Our Club is proud to have such skilled players doing so well in all three styles,’ club captain Ray Chapman said.
