A rainy morning wasn't enough to dissuade the dogged croquet playing field which gathered at the Whangārei Croquet Club for their monthly tournament yesterday.
Over 30 players battled on through a few mid-morning showers with competitors travelling from as far north as Kaitaia and as far south as Waipū to attend.
Northern Advocate photographer John Stone went along to catch the action.
