Mildura Player Development 1st and 2nd June
Twelve players from Mildura and Red Cliffs enjoyed the first of three x 2 day development workshops at Mildura Croquet Club last week.
The coaching on all aspects of competitive play was informative with all participants learning the tactics side of golf croquet. All are looking forward to the next workshop in July.
Thanks must go to the coaches and Croquet Victoria for organising this.
