Victorian Men’s and Women’s Championships
This popular annual event was held over the weekend of 10/11 August at Cairnlea. Conditions were less than ideal with cold, wind, heavy rain and generally miserable conditions prevailing. It was most pleasing that several players had travelled from interstate to participate.
Sunny season opening at Cairnlea
Very dapper in his Victorian team blazer, Croquet Victoria's latest Life Member Kenn Boal ran the first hoop at the Victorian Croquet Centre, to open the 2019/20 season.
The weather was kind, the lawns and building were in excellent order, and 70 other members were there to enjoy the day.

Ruth Duffy, Vic Coordinator Coaching, writes:
All further accreditation of coaches in Australia has been postponed until further notice. This is so a review and update of golf and association coaching manuals and levels can be undertaken and at a later date Ricochet and Gateball.
Please continue to send in your applications and complete the AIS online course so that once this has been completed we can move forward with accrediting coaches.
As things progress I will update the coaching webpage for interested parties to read, thank you for your patience, at the present time realistically we are looking at sometime in 2020 before this process will be completed.
