Geraldton Croquet Club has opened the new season and recognised one of its finest contributors with a special award for a stellar 16 years of service.

Croquet club patron and member for Geraldton Lara Dalton handed over a certificate of recognition to volunteer Wendy McDonald on February 13 for years of service as the season opened.

“Hardworking volunteer Wendy McDonald was acknowledged for 16 years of service including as treasurer, housekeeper, committee member and various other activities to support the club,” the club’s Kay Chynoweth said.

Ms Dalton also officially opened the new season by running the first hoop of the day, making the shot with a blue ball and sending it well on the way to the next hoop.

With WA’s borders set to reopen, Croquet West advises the Golf Croquet World Championship is due to run at Sussex County Croquet Club in Southwick, England, in July and August.

Spots will be limited to 64 players and wild card entries are available.

Croquet West said the final decision on whether the tournament would run was due to be announced on March 31, and players should not make non-refundable travel arrangements before then.
