Croquet Pennants season concludes on a high

Sawtell Croquet Club players celebrate their season at the presentation lunch.

THE 2024 Croquet Pennants season has concluded for another competitive year with Sawtell finishing runners up in Division 3.

Teams from South West Rocks, Urunga, Sawtell, Woolgoolga and Coutts Crossing engaged in a six-week home and away round-robin each Thursday, with the winners for both Division 2 and Division 3 being determined in the final round.

In Division 3, South West Rocks emerged as the overall winner after a countback, with three clubs on equal points.

In Division 2, both South West Rocks and Coutts Crossing stood on equal footing, but in the season’s final match, South West Rocks clinched victory and the pennant.

Pennants were awarded at a lunch held at the Sawtell RSL on May 4.

Maree Grant, the Sawtell Club Pennants captain, expressed her delight with both Sawtell division teams.

“We had a mixture of experience and new talent on the teams, and both teams gelled together to improve each week.”

She said full credit is due to the South West Rocks club, who worked tirelessly in the off-season to seize the lead in both divisions’ final matches.

Ms Grant said she is eagerly anticipating the coming season as the players develop their experience and skills.
