No raining on the croquet parade
THE heavens may have opened up last Friday but that didn't deter a hardy group from contesting the Golf Croquet Championship at Sawtell.
The competition was played as a round robin event in two blocks with a time limit of 40 minutes allowing for each game and the competition was strong with some close results.
Both Jacky Martyn and Bill Singleton won all four of their matches in their respective blocks to progress through to the play-off to decide the winner.
Fitting in with the afternoon weather, the final match started during a shower yet still proved to be a tense tussle as both players battled the weather and each other..
After 10 hoops the score was five hoops each.
Singleton made the 11th hoop and with his black ball fired a long shot to run the 12th hoop and win the championship 7-5.
