The Bishop Duppas Croquet section rounded off its season with its Finals Day on 11th September. There were two competition trophies to be awarded. Winner of the Singles title this year was Daphne Heywood-Jones, who won a very tight game against opponent Ann Thomson. However, Ann was not to be disappointed for long as she and her partner, Margaret Clarke, were victors in the Doubles knock-out competition, beating Jackie Elliott and Anne Street in the final.
The Croquet Club presentation luncheon is being held at the clubhouse in October and playing will recommence at the end of April 2018 when the greens reopen for bowls. The club meets every Monday, Wednesday and Friday 2 - 4pm during the season and new members are always welcome. No experience is needed as tuition will be given.
