Terrific junior GC coaching session at Ballarat
It’s always a joy to write something positive about junior croquet. In fact, it’s hard to find something ever that is negative to say about junior croquet.
Following on from the club’s successful event earlier in the year when five of our junior players attended the Under 21 Golf Croquet Nationals in Adelaide, the Australian Croquet Association was able to organise for the ACA Under 21 Development Coach, Terry Ericson, to travel to Ballarat to hold a junior coaching clinic.

Croquet: a hit for health!
Croquet Victoria has just published a video on Youtube - Croquet: a hit for health - which we commissioned to showcase the health benefits of croquet.
It's directed at allied health professionals who may be looking for a new sport for their patients.
The script for the video was developed with input from the Australian Physiotherapists Association, and funding was provided by the State Government.
Clubs are being asked to pass the link on to local health professionals, and to suggest that they might bring an interested client to the club to try out croquet for an hour at the modest cost of a green fee...
Inaugural Rich River Golf Croquet Handicap Doubles
The Rich River croquet courts were busy on 15 and 16 June when the Club hosted 40 players from 11 Victorian and NSW clubs competing in the inaugural Rich River Golf Croquet Handicap Doubles Tournament.
Over the two days 91 games were played in two round robin blocks, with the winners of the blocks meeting in a final.
Foggy start for Morwell GC Doubles
The croquet gods finally smiled on Morwell Croquet Club for its annual Golf Croquet Doubles Tournament held over the weekend of 6 and 7 July. Players from clubs across Gippsland as well as some from Drysdale and Melbourne took to the Morwell courts for a big weekend of croquet.
After the wild and wet weather endured by players and referees during last year's tournament, Saturday started with some early morning fog followed by a very pleasant day for croquet. Sunday was slightly chillier, but not a drop of rain in sight. Got to be happy with that.
