Hi all, I am looking forward to the croquet year ahead of us.

I extend a big welcome to the two new faces serving on the COM for the first time. I am sure that Craig Fraser (Vice President) & Alexis Dent (Players Rep.) will add value to the committee along with the other hardworking members.

Coaching News

Many members have joined in the on-going coaching sessions and have been able to revise stun shots, clearance shots, jump shots and gained some tactical tips.

Sessions were held recently for those who have joined our club during 2022/2023 to offer those members help with various aspects of their game and to think about developing some more advanced tactical moves.

A new group of beginners for Golf Croquet will commence on Thursday 31st August.

Sue Yule, Coaching Co-ordinator


Carolyn McNamara is slowly on the improve and managing to walk a little has been a long haul for her.

Kathy Porter has resumed her cancer treatment and our thoughts are with her as she continues on this arduous journey.

Anita Beer, Welfare Officer

Anita is currently experiencing some health issues of her own. We wish her a speedy recovery to her usual, active lifestyle.

Social BBQ

A poll at the August BBQ resulted in agreement to increase the cost for future BBQ's to $10 per head, to allow for a small profit to go back to the club.

The next BBQ will be held on Tuesday 19th September.

Cost - $10 and will be Souvlaki.

Please remember to pay before the date.

SAVE THE DATE- CHRISTMAS PARTY- Thursday 30th November
