Club captain Maureen Duffield kindly supplied that following report

On Saturday 4th November at St Heliers Bay Croquet Club sponsored by Scarbro Construction.
We had a lovely tournament with 16 competitors from Pt Chev, Mt Albert, Carlton and our club and the despite miserable weather in the afternoon it didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the players. And all stayed out to complete the 4 games. This is a competition for the 10+ and the feedback from the players was that it was good to have a competition for this group.
