RICH RIVER’S golf croquet team is still clinging to second place on the ladder after a loss to Echuca Moama White last week.
The result couldn’t have been closer. Rich River won six games, 68 hoops to EM White six games, 69 hoops.
In Association croquet section one Marjorie Grant and Ian Grant both played strongly to beat Mooroopna Gold two games to one, 62 hoops to 48.
Section two played Numurkah White, winning its singles but losing the doubles. The resulting win was two games to one, approximately 10 hoops up.
The club is looking forward to hosting the Rich River Croquet Club Classic this weekend and anticipating some good competition.
On the following weekend, October 21 and 22, the club is holding “come and try” days at 2pm. All welcome.

Help for sports clubs
MURRAY River Council, Campaspe Shire Council and Sports Community will run workshops around club leadership across Echuca and Moama next month.
The free workshops will look at how people run their sporting clubs, and look at management styles for the day to day running of the clubs.
The sessions will also look at the attitudes and behaviours that go into a successful sporting club, and how to harbour those behaviours and cultures within your own clubs.
Organisers recommend that two to three members of the club executive attend both meetings, run on November 1 and November 22.
Attendance must be confirmed to Beck Hayward by calling 5481 0900.
