The Vic Open Singles AC Championship in a COVID year
The Victorian Open Singles Association Croquet Championship held at the Victorian Croquet Centre at Cairnlea from 30th December to 3rd January was quite different this year. The pandemic reduced the field to 15 players and there was a huge workload keeping the venue COVID safe.
The tournament began with players allocated to round robin blocks of 7 and 8 players. The top 4 in each block then qualified to play in the best-of-3 games Quarter Finals, Semis and Final.
