The Owen Edwards Golf Croquet Challenge – a challenging event

The Owen Edwards Golf Croquet Challenge was held at the Victorian Croquet Centre on 9-10 October 2021 and was televised as a ‘Freebie’ on Kayo.  It is a new annual event on the Croquet Victoria calendar. 

It was run this year under strict government-approved COVID-safe conditions.  The participants were required to be high-performance players (have played in National and/or International croquet events), and as such were designated Authorised Workers.  This enabled them to travel beyond the 15 km limit for practice and the event itself.  The COVID-safe protocols included players and officials travelling directly to and from the venue without interacting with anyone, no spectators, and the now familiar distancing, mask wearing and cleaning procedures.

Eased Return to Play restrictions - Metro and Shepparton

The Government has announced that players in Metro Melbourne and Greater Shepparton may now access toilets when they are playing under the "picnic" provisions of the current Restricted Activity Directions (Restricted Areas), available from the Chief Health Officer page on the Department of Health and Human Services website.

Consistent with current restrictions which prohibit mingling in indoor spaces, members in Melbourne and Shepparton are still not allowed to enter clubhouses to access equipment. Some clubs have arranged to stack necessary equipment so it can be reached by someone opening a door from the outside. Clubs wishing to adopt this approach should check the arrangement with their local government authority.
