2018 Golf Croquet State Team

The team to represent Victoria in the Golf Croquet Interstate Shield (ISS) was announced recently.

This tournament, which will be held in the Hunter Valley from September 12 to 16, is a major event which will bring together the best golf croquet players from six States in a competition in which each State plays each other in a mix of singles and mixed doubles.


The team which has been chosen in accordance with the VCA Selection Policy is:


Terry Hopkins – Captain
Kevin Beard
Darren McLoughlin
John van der Touw                                         

Chas Quinn – Reserve                                     


Patricia Watts – Vice Captain
Tricia Devlin
Gail Hopkins
Judy Wembridge

Anna Miller - Reserve

The Selection Policy has recently been changed to allow the Selectors to appoint a Travelling Reserve who must attend the ISS as a Team member.

Victoria has won the Interstate Shield for five of the last six years and will be hoping to win it back this year after narrowly losing to Western Australia in 2017. This year the competition will be tough, however the team is preparing with great endeavour. It is a great honour to be selected to represent Victoria and all good wishes go to the team for a most successful tournament.
