Tight competition for Croquet Vic Silver and Bronze Medals
Croquet Victoria turned on a great weekend of excellent courts, fine weather and very, very competitive play for the Victorian AC Silver and Bronze Medals.
Although not at the level of the past few weeks of World Championships nevertheless the results in both events went right to the last few minutes of the last round. Tight indeed.

A personal account from Pete Landrebe:
Wow ! what an event to be part of as a player and a spectator.
The Australian players were all able to enter this event with good confidence and expectation of result. We knew the lawn conditions and knew how to handle what only western Melbourne could offer in weather - weather that can be quite different each day.

Members and clubs are asked to keep an eye on the Croquet Australia website, which is being updated as often as possible with links to current medical advice.
Many of our members fall into the Government defined “vulnerable and at high risk” category of the population. Croquet Victoria has a duty of care to all our members, and Council will continue to monitor COVID-19 developments as they evolve. Our priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our members.
Please take care! This includes longer than usual handwashing, cleaning touched surfaces (including balls and doorhandles), and using hand sanitisers and paper hand towels...
Many clubs have already cancelled tournaments and competitions. This decision is up to clubs. Advice from Sport and Recreation Victoria is currently that outdoor activities involving small numbers of people can continue. We will let you know if this changes.
