Dunsborough Annual GC Singles Tournament

12 members competed in this tournament over the weekend, 6 of whom have been playing for only 12-14 months. The level of competition was incredibly strong, resulting in some very tightly contested games. 2 of the newer members competed in the semi finals, and 1 took out the title of GC Singles Champion. In the Semi finals, Richard Taylor defeated Graeme Davies and Anthony Nelson defeated Odette Moro.

Congratulations to the Winner, Anthony Nelson, who defeated Richard Taylor in the Final. Anthony has reduced his handicap from 12 to 6 since July 2023.

Graeme Davies won all his Block games but was defeated in the semi finals. He is another very impressive new member. The standard of play over the tournament was at an encouragingly high level and augurs well for Dunsborough in the future.

Look forward to seeing you on the croquet lawn. Gary

Mandurah C Grade Doubles

My apologies as I missed this one.

From the Mandurah Facebook Page

“Perfect weather last weekend helped make Mandurah Croquet and Recreational Club’s C grade inter-club’ tournament a big success.

11 teams, from 9 clubs ( Moorabina Bunbury, Drakesbrook, Byford,Sorrento, Cambridge, Goshells, Belmont, Halls Head and Mandurah), competed over the two days.

Sisters Janice and Wendy from the Sorrento club took out first place by winning all the 10 games they played.

Runners up with 8 games won were Jenny and Cheryl from the Cambridge club.

The courts were in great condition thanks to our greenkeeper, Cindy, and this was commented on by the appreciative players.

As usual, our fabulous volunteers worked hard to ensure the club looked inviting and the day ran smoothly.

Special thanks to our tournament referee, Steve, from the Halls Head club.

Finally, we must say a huge congratulations to Felicia ,for doing such a marvellous job in her first time (but hopefully not her last time) officiating as Tournament Director. Tournament Assistant, Johanna, provided great support over the weekend and with the two of them at the helm and with the help from Club volunteers, the tournament was a great success.”

Make sure you visit their Facebook to see all the terrific images.
