Hong Kong Duo play in WA before heading to Cairnlea at the end of November for the Australian Championship

WA’s gateball fraternity might be small and relatively recently  underway, but when 2 visitors from Hong Kong expressed a hope to catch some play  while here on holiday , a call to accommodate brought a fine response.

Cambridge Croquet club hosted the morning and, in perfect sunshine, we gave Nicole and her sister Julie a taste of play that might come close to conditions they will experience in Melbourne next month.

 Not sure about the quality of competition they sampled!

These two delightful ladies were very appreciative and we now constitute a fan club that will follow their fortunes in the Nationals.
