NDCA Season Opening 2018

A big thank you to Jean Wharton, who opened the season for 2018 at our club Thursday 16th August, 2018. Jean is a life member of Bendigo Croquet Club and recently celebrated her 90th birthday. Members from the NDCA clubs attended to enjoy afternoon tea and social GC/Assoc games. The day was very well represented and totally enjoyed by all. Thank you to everyone for coming and bringing afternoon tea to share.

Our official re-opening

We finally organised our official date to thank everyone in the re-opening of our club. So many people helped us in so many ways after the devastation of the fire in May 2015. A huge thank you to everyone involved. We were especially excited to have the Governor of Victoria, The Honourable Linda Dessau accept our invitation & were delighted when she played a ball through a hoop to mark the occasion. Champagne bottles were popped & a table full of niceties was enjoyed by all.


NDCA Pennant 2017

Jo Bury from our club teamed up with Bill Humphreys from Golden Square (Bendigold)which proved to be a winning combination taking out the opposing team of Quarry Hill 6 games to love in the final. Bill, who is usually an Association croquet player proved his skill is present no matter what code he is playing. Congratulations to you both and a great result for both clubs.
