Woodville Croquet club hosted the first South Australian Doubles Gateball tournament on 12 June 2016 in glorious sunshine.
3 teams competed in a ‘double’ round robin format with each team playing the other two teams twice – once with red and once with white balls.
The games were all close with the winners from Hyde Park croquet club – Barry Haydon and Barry Jennings – winning 3 of their 4 games. The competition hinged on the last shot of game 4 with the ‘Barrys’ trailing by 2 points. Barry Haydon played ball 7 and scored gate 3, sparked out ball 8 and hit the goal pole, winning the game by 1 point!
All in all it was a great competition and thanks go to all of the competitors. Hope to see more of you at the next event!
