WONTHAGGI croquet playing couple Sue Baker and Tom Lacey recently returned from a holiday in New Zealand where they managed to play golf croquet in Hornby and Rangiora.

Having to self-isolate upon their return, they set up a croquet green on their front lawn and had an eagerly contested “North Wonthaggi Golf Croquet Isolation Championships 2020”.

Whilst the spectators were limited due to physical distancing requirements and no prior publicity (actually no one watched), the games were hard fought, but also had lots of laughter and high fives.

Sue Baker, playing superbly throughout the tournament, was the eventual winner.

Tom Lacey, runner-up and the only other competitor, congratulated Sue on her win but said he hoped the “Isolation Championship” did not have to become an annual event.
