Australian AC Doubles and Singles championships
The Australian Association Croquet Open – Doubles and Singles – was held at Cairnlea over nine days in late November.
This is one of the most prestigious events of the year. In recent years the number entering has dropped but the standard is still extremely high.
Horsham Croquet Club to stay in place
Horsham Croquet Club is to stay on at the Botanic Gardens in Horsham, along with the neighbouring tennis club whose courts they use for regional croquet tournaments.
A major win for the croquet community!
Earlier this year a consultants' report proposed relocating both tennis and croquet to a new site where the tennis courts would be surfaced with artificial grass and not available for croquet. This was part of a proposed new masterplan for sports facilities in Horsham.
