“Not the Eire Cup” - an event at Cairnlea with Alternate Stroke Doubles
A new event called “Not the Eire Cup” was held at the Victorian Croquet Centre 12-14 March 2021. The idea for the event arose because the real Eire Cup to be held in Sydney at this time was cancelled due to the risk of border closures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Not the Eire Cup” was contested between teams of 2 players with a state team/squad player paired with a player with a handicap up to 10. Matches consisted of a Doubles game and Singles games between the low handicap players and between the high handicap players.
