Range Croquet Club
Contributed by Ken Barker

ON Sunday May 1, the Range Croquet Club’s lawns were turned into a delightful wonderland with colourful flowers, strutting flamingos, and other bright decorations in keeping with our ‘Alice in Wonderland’ themed event to mark the Centenary of Croquet. Even ‘white rabbit’ was in attendance, anxiously checking his watch and clock throughout the morning! Delicious homemade sweet delights were in abundance and raffle winners were delighted with their prizes, which included a beautiful fruit tray from Maleny IGA.

In having this event, we joined with clubs all around Australia who are enjoying festivities on World Croquet Weekend by inviting their local communities to join in and try out this fun and engaging game which we all enjoy so much. Croquet is a challenging and entertaining sport, suitable for all ages and which can give lifelong enjoyment. There are players around the country ranging in age from nine to 90 years old. Being an outdoor sport is an added bonus for us here in Maleny as we generally enjoy such lovely seasonal weather and green, natural outdoor spaces in which to enjoy the game.

All are welcome to come down to try croquet on a Saturday morning at 8am during our regular coaching session, or to come along and observe play on one of the play days as detailed below.

Play days are Thursday and Sunday 1pm for 1.30pm start. Contact Sarah Widin for other days.

Coaching is available on Saturday mornings at 8am.

Friday 22 April: The Whistlers played at Caloundra against the Hot Chillies. We had showers during warmup, but the sun came out so it turned into a great day for tennis. Starting with long rallies, it was a long day. All games were close and it could go either way – but we won the last points. Score was 43-25 games, 7-1 sets. Team was Aki Lepper, Paula Cudmore, Brenda Warner and thanks to Cindy Harris for filling in.

Sunday 24 April: It was a much anticipated match between the Wikings v Wompoos. Unfortunately, only three sets were completed before it was called off due to the rain. We’ll have to wait until August to see who gets the bragging rights.

Friday 29 April: The Whistlers were washed out.
