SIXTY people from across the state braved the rain last week to celebrate a little Christmas in July croquet joy.
Players enjoyed four games of golf croquet and two games of association croquet before sitting down to a Christmas feast including traditional Christmas pudding, Pavlova and apple pie while Santa handed out presents.
Shepparton Croquet Club publicity officer, Trudy Serafini said, “It was a fantastic day.
“They all love getting together and despite the rain, everyone had a great time.
“All the club members donated the food, which was wonderful.
“This is the club’s biggest fundraiser for the year with funds going towards the upkeep of the club premises.”
