Greyton Croquet Lawn Construction
We had some very good action yesterday thanks to the horses, the front end loader and the operator! I would estimate that the Base Foundation for the croquet lawns is about 75% to 80% completed. When this foundation is done, we can then think about sand and irrigation but then we will need a lot of Rand to proceed ON. Denis Turnbull Chairman GCC
Gauteng Provincial Championships
The tournament was held from 18th-21st March at Country Club, Johannesburg.
The four courts were in superb condition and the weather remained fine and warm throughout. It was pleasing that of the 29 entrants, several were first timers and in fact one couple had only been playing for a few months.
An excellent dinner was arranged at the Cricket Pavilion on the Saturday evening and Prize-giving drinks and snacks were held on the Tuesday after the finals.
