Victoria Golf Croquet Regional Championships

This year’s Vic Golf Croquet Regional Championships were held at the Victorian Croquet Centre over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of April. It was truly wonderful to have all 14 regions represented in 2 Divisions or more, so the Courts and the venue were full and bursting with life and energy. After such a long time of restrictions and cancellations, it was fantastic to see Cairnlea thriving on the hustle and bustle once again. Chilly mornings gave way to two lovely days of hard-fought croquet and some very even and exciting competitions. 

Several of the players in this year’s Regionals had never been to Cairnlea before and weren’t quite sure what to expect. It’s also wonderful to catch up with people again who I usually only see at this Tournament once a year. Every single person did their Region proud and it was an absolute joy to be around so many people enjoying the venue, enjoying the croquet and representing their Region with a great deal of dignity, fun and spirit of adventure.

Relaxed COVID orders UPDATED - more responsibility for clubs and organisers

The Victorian Government has just announced a series of significant changes in COVID policy. See https://www.health.vic.gov.au/covid-19/pandemic-order-register.

  • Double vaxxing is not required for sporting activities (except for "specified workers", including sports volunteers)
  • QR check-in has been suspended
  • Individuals who test positive for COVID are responsible for notifying close and social contacts themselves - including notifying their croquet club if they attended there during the 48 hours before symptoms started, or they got their positive result
  • Clubs and event organisers are responsible for notifying anyone who may have been a close or social contact

This means clubs and event organisers need to ensure they maintain detailed attendance records, including arrival and departure times.

It is still open to clubs to require that anyone attending be fully vaxxed / excepted.
