RICH River Croquet Club’s annual Kingball competition was held on Saturday, with 17 players vying for the John Kelly Trophy.
Since 1992 the trophy has been presented to the winner of the game which merges elements of association and golf croquet and brings together all club members.
Heather Kelly is a fan of the game and was there to present the trophy in honour of her late husband.
This year’s winner with two wins and a draw out of three games was Russell Smyth. There were a number of members who won two games each.
In club play on Thursday last week 12 people played doubles. The winner was Dave Maher who won all three games, and the runner up was Dave Hocking — one of five players to win two games.
On Tuesday there were 16 members playing singles. Again the winner was Dave Maher with three games. The runner-up was Graham Richards, also winning three games but behind on aggregate hoops.
The annual general meeting of the club will be held on July 3 at 6.30pm. All members are encouraged to attend.
Nominations close at 5pm on Tuesday. Nomination forms are available at the clubrooms.
