Unusual Victorian Association Croquet Men’s Championship
With only three entries for the Victorian AC Women’s Championship, the event was abandoned for this year. However, the women that did enter wanted to play croquet, so they were included in the field of the Men’s Championship and acquitted themselves well.
The event was held at the Victorian Croquet Centre on 20-21 November 2021 and was televised as a ‘Freebie’ on Kayo.
COVID rules relaxed further
The most recent directions provided by the Victorian Chief Health Officer relax most of the rules applying to croquet, though those attending clubs must still register using the Government QR code. For detail, see the updated Return to Croquet guidelines.
There is still a distinction between social play and community sport.
