Pukekohe Croquet host Northern Championship

Pukekohe Croquet Club recently hosted ‘The 32nd Northern Veterans’ Croquet Championship’.
Held over five days, it included Association and Golf Croquet events for ‘veterans’—over 60!
Players from Northland, Auckland, Waikato-King-Country, Thames Valley and Bay of Plenty as well as Counties-Manukau enjoyed reasonable weather and good competition—and good prizes from sponsor ‘Possum Bourne’ Ryman Village.
Counties-Manukau players who featured in placings were: Gale Rubick and Brendon Neilson (Pukekohe) 1st and 2nd in the AC Handicap Singles; R & M Turner—2nd AC Handicap Doubles; Jill Hill and Norm Beck (Pukekohe) won the GC Handicap Doubles; Jim Dickson (Howick) 2nd in GC Champ Singles; Maureen Bishop (Pukekohe) and Vanessa Baddock (Howick) 2nd and 3rd in GC Handicap Singles.
Possibly the happiest player of the tournament was Jill Hill, who on receiving her trophy, told everyone it was the first trophy she had won in her entire life!
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
