Croquet is Back!
Men’s and Women’s GC Championships 2021

On Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 November Cairnlea was once again invaded by a keen horde of mallet wielding athletes – some more concerned than others with the lack of opportunity to hone their form leading up to this year’s Championships.

The day began with a few emotional words and a minute’s silence for croquet’s highly regarded and respected Alan Honey, who died suddenly on 26 November. Our love and thoughts go to Kerri-Ann Organ on the loss of her partner, to Alan’s daughter Larissa, and to all Kerri-Ann's and Alan’s friends and families. Alan was a gentle man whose bright and cheerful demeanour lit up all that had the privilege of knowing him. Rest In Peace Alan.

Unusual Victorian Association Croquet Men’s Championship

With only three entries for the Victorian AC Women’s Championship, the event was abandoned for this year.  However, the women that did enter wanted to play croquet, so they were included in the field of the Men’s Championship and acquitted themselves well.

The event was held at the Victorian Croquet Centre on 20-21 November 2021 and was televised as a ‘Freebie’ on Kayo.
