Four local clubs are preparing to host the NSW 2021 Golf Croquet, division three, doubles and singles championships from Wednesday 14 till Sunday, 18 July.

The contests are being co-hosted by Ballina Cherry Street Croquet, Ballina Croquet, Byron Bay and Lismore Croquet Clubs

‘This is a huge win for the Northern Rivers, with players entering from all over the Northern Rivers, NSW and interstate,’ Deborah Jones, publicity officer for the tournament, said.

‘The event has proved so popular that a wait list has been established for entries, and games will have to be played at Ballina, Lismore and Byron croquet grounds.

‘Hopefully the success of this event will mean Croquet NSW will schedule more events in the Northern Rivers in the future,’ she said.

David Scott, from Ballina Cherry Street Croquet club, is the tournament manager. David has also recently been selected the NSW State Team.
