Owen Edwards Golf Challenge
November 5th and 6th saw sunshine, no wind and 2 wonderful days of play at Cairnlea for the Owen Edwards Golf Croquet Cup. The courts looked wonderful thanks to the volunteers mainly Lester, Kevin, Stephen and Owen who have prepared the venue beautifully.
Owen Edwards is the 5th life member of Croquet Victoria.

High level croquet: it's down to the wire
After ten days play in four tests between the world’s leading croquet nations, the competing teams are still neck and neck.
Australia are the defending champions, having won the MacRobertson Shield in California in 2017.
After a narrow win against New Zealand in the first Test, Australia has beaten the US 13:7 with one match yet to be decided. But we are yet to play England, which came into the competition as the highest ranked team.
In the first round of Tests, England had a strong win against the United States team. In the second round, it beat New Zealand 11:10, in the last match of the day.
Australia and England now play off in the final Test to determine who will hold the Shield.
