Our third and final test between Australia B and Victoria was held today at the Sandringham Croquet Club. The club is like a hidden oasis, tucked between the road and the sea amongst the scrubby saltbushes.
The clubhouse was rebuilt after a fire in the early 80’s and the courts are completely lined by trees and shrubs. The greens are immaculate and an absolute pleasure to play on. There is even a small practice area. It certainly is a club everyone should visit.
Full results can be found on Croquetscores.
We really appreciated having many of the local members come down to watch today and at the end of play, Marty conducted a coaching session.
This three day event has been a terrific experience and we would like to thank the members of the Brunswick Mallet Sports Club, Sandringham Croquet Club and Williamstown Croquet Club for allowing us to play at their clubs.
Marty, Torben, Brett and myself would also like to thank our billets in Owen, Janet, Lester and Claire. They have been amazing hosts.
