Glorious competition at Vic Handicap titles
The Victorian Golf Croquet Handicap Doubles and Singles ran at Cairnlea from Friday 6 December to Sunday 8 December.
The Doubles saw two days of fierce competition between 10 teams with handicaps ranging from -2 right through to 11. All teams took home several wins and even the weather got warmer as the competition heated up. We welcomed an interstate competitor in Georgie Carnegie. It was a pleasure to have her and we hope to see Georgie making the trip south again soon.
Outstanding play in interschool GC competition
School teams from Wanganui Park Secondary College, Shepparton High School, GV Grammar School and Euroa Secondary College entered teams to play in the Goulburn Murray Credit Union / Goulburn Valley Croquet Association tournament on Monday 2 December.
As we can't plan for the weather we were worried when storms, wind, rain and hail was forecast. We did have four seasons in one day on Monday! The students were very resilient when a shower was a bit heavier for a few minutes, as only a couple of teams sheltered out of the rain, then play continued.

Keenly contested Vic AC Doubles
The Victorian Open Doubles Championship was keenly contested at Cairnlea on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 December.
A smaller than usual entry (not surprising with a number of players electing not to come to Cairnlea twice in such a short time with the World Championships coming up!), but the contest was close and some excellent croquet was displayed by the players.
