New court for Phillip Island Croquet Club
The sun was shining and there were smiles all round when the new court (lawn) was officially put into action at the Phillip Island Croquet Club recently.
It was a day to remember for club members and invited guests from the Shire – Mayor Pam Rothfield and Councillors Les Larke and Michael Whelan – when the ribbon was cut signifying a welcome addition to the club’s well-established facilities.
This new playing area now enables more rounds of croquet to be played at once.
In welcoming members and guests, club president John Swarbrick expressed the club’s delight in attaining this Council grant and in being able to provide extra playing space for its 45 members.
The game of croquet is gaining in strength and appeal to both men and women.
In cutting the ribbon and running the first hoop, Mayor Rothfield expressed her delight in enabling this development to be undertaken through shire funding and in supporting this local sporting club.
