Decision on Victorian Croquet Centre

At Croquet Victoria's Annual General Meeting on 17 June, the 14 Regional delegates voted unanimously in favour of the following motion for the future of the Victorian Croquet Centre:

In recognition of the need to strengthen the financial structure of the Victorian Croquet Centre, the Croquet Victoria Council should develop, implement and monitor a five-year Business Plan for the Victorian Croquet Centre with the aim of diversifying revenue and increasing usage.

This decision follows widespread interest and thought across Croquet Victoria in discussion of options for the future of the VCC. 

The five year horizon approved in this motion will enable Croquet Victoria to focus on the centre and generate a substantially enhanced and productive program of events, including potentially international events, national events, and local partnerships and bookings.

The Australian Croquet Open Singles Championship was held from 8- 12th May at VCC.

The croquet on show was awesome with top world ranking players including the 3 Fletcher brothers (with Greg having travelled from Germany to be at VCC )and 2 USA competitors along with Australian top ranking GC players from  all states.

Melbourne had most favorable weather so play was not inhibited in any way.
