Joan and Elaine relax after their win.

The experience combination of Joan Campbell (92 years young) and Elaine Astley (89) were able to beat the field and collect a win in the Cherry Street Twilight Golf Croquet Plate Competition held at Ballina.

Both Joan and Elaine have been playing for many years and are very proud members of the CSCC and look forward to their weekly game with the other members.

The pair’s success shows that age is no barrier in croquet,’ said Greg Porter, publicity officer. ‘The skills are still there, but the players are just a little slower around the greens’.

‘Croquet can be enjoyed by all ages, and is a gentle sport that requires minimum effort but is quite tactical when played,’ he said

Debbie Jones and Christine Edlund were the Club’s Twilight Championship winners.
