Vale Elaine Hancock

The Lakes Entrance Croquet Club is saddened to advise the passing of its inaugural President, Elaine Hancock on 22nd January 2022 after a long period of ill-health.

I remember as a member of the then recently formed Sarsfield CC with Nancy Hills, the then President of Bairnsdale CC, helping Elaine run a come and try event on the grass of the (waterfront) Esplanade at Lakes Entrance in the last half of 2005.  At the public meeting to establish the club, Elaine was elected as the inaugural President, an office she filled for eleven years, as well as being the club delegate to the Gippsland Region Council.

The Victorian Association Croquet Open Championships

The Victorian AC Open Championships were held between Christmas and New Year at the Victorian Croquet Centre.  It was a small field this year due to COVID, although the Singles were boosted by a contingent of 3 interstate players.

Five pairs contested the Doubles championship, which was played as a Round Robin on the first day, with the top 4 pairs going through to a single game knockout on the second day.  The “minor premiers” based on the Round Robin were Lachlan Berryman (Ringwood) & Josh Wilson (Brunswick).  Lachlan completed the only Triple Peel of the tournament.

Vale Eric O’Donnell

Jenny Leviston writes: 

Eric O’Donnell died on New Year’s Eve 2021 in the Camperdown Hospital.  He had been unwell for some time.

Before joining Ballarat Western Croquet Club, Eric was a member of the Lismore Croquet Club. Eric was more than just a member of the Lismore Club, he was secretary, greenkeeper and chief organiser of most things including tournaments and social days, such as the annual ‘Christmas in July’ competition.  He played in the Lismore pennant team in the Ballarat and District Croquet Association pennant competition.

  • the new Strategic Plan for croquet
  • a change to pro rata members' affiliation fees

  • membership of the working group which is developing a proposed new constitution for Croquet Victoria.
