Several Summerland crokinole players performed well at the provincial championships earlier this month.

The championships were held in Oliver, drawing participants from around the province and beyond.

Ed Ripley said there are 10 to 12 regular crokinole players in Summerland. Half of them attended the championship competition. “We are active and we are doing well,” he said.

He said the game, which was developed in Canada, is popular among all ages.

“It’s a real hands-on game,” he said. “Older people are attracted to it because they remember it, but there are so many younger people attracted to it too.”

In the doubles competitive category, Jordon and Ed Ripley of Summerland took second place.

Charlene and Tyler Ripley placed second in doubles recreational while Darlene Cederholm and Doug Willis placed fourth.

Jordon Ripley, 11, won first place in the singles recreational category.
