Quarry Hill Primary Class Chal
After 4 weeks of coaching it was time for Q/ Hill primary to take to the courts in their class challenge ,16 in teams of 4 played 3 games of doubles Aussie Croquet ,it was great to see an enthusiastic group of children ,and even better that some are keen to do more ,The winning team scored 60 hoops and took out the Class trophy ,all participants recieved a badge and were treated to some fresh fruit supplied by Helen Gourley .
Bill and Helen have done a fantastic job of coordinating this but nothing can be done without the help of all our volunteers, thank you all and lets hope we see these young ones on our courts more often.
