Hullo Brenda and all,
The problem has arisen because when tertiary balls were
first introduced, they came with Orange and Grey, v two
shades of purple (say burgundy and mauve)
After a few years, the paler one, mauve (or lilac), was
discontinued and a new greenish colour, aqua replaced it.
So now it is definitely Orange & Gray v Burgundy
& Aqua, and the correct sequence would be: Aqua
(=Blue), Orange (=Red), Burgundy (=Black) and Gray
I accept that there's not a lot of logic here, and not
all clubs follow that sequence, however whenever you are
compelled to triple bank, it does revert to "fun" games,
so if "Catfood and Dogfood" please you, then just enjoy

Thank you. We might have to take a vote on this,

To add to the confusion, Mosman has
tertiary balls and they are referred to as:
Turquoise and Magenta v Gold and
Here's hoping you play the right ball.
always thought it was
Orange and grey and purple
and aqua but cat food and
dog food made me laugh!
At Jamberoo, while one
lawn has been out of
service for renovation,
it has been necessary to
use the tertiary balls
so that players are not
sitting around waiting
The question is - well,
actually 2 questions :
are the correct names
for the colours and in
which order should
they be played?
have found porridge,
peach, slate and
aubergine for Barlow
but ours are Dawson
I have also found
- Turquoise & Burgundy v Orange
- Lilac, Turquoise, Orange and
- Lemonade, Orangeade, Catfood and
everyone is totally
confused, I think it's
time to make a
decision so would be
very grateful for some
input here before I
put an article in our
Thanks, in advance!
