Hoop yet

cropped-header211South Australian croquet seems to be looking up somewhat after a relatively fallow period. A South Australian player (Simon Hockey) made to the final of the Australian Men’s Single, and the team narrowly missed out on the runner-up slot in the inter-state Eire Cup.  Not dominant, but a lot better than some recent performances.

The secret of this recovery? In part, a much better culture in the governance of the sport in the state.  But also, maybe, increased use of the famous Fenwick Elliott mallet?
