AC Tournament Play Returns to Ringwood and Kew

For many years, both Ringwood and Kew Croquet Clubs held annual open Association Croquet tournaments.  However, since 2019, circumstances (Covid, reduced number of knowledgeable officials, and court conditions) have resulted in an absence.  This year, the two clubs decided to hold a split tournament between the clubs, helping each other in the tasks.

Ringwood started by hosting players in the handicap ranges -3 to 11 on 13 and 14 April in delightful conditions. 



The Australian Croquet Open Singles Championship was held from 8- 12th May at VCC.

The croquet on show was awesome with top world ranking players including the 3 Fletcher brothers (with Greg having travelled from Germany to be at VCC )and 2 USA competitors along with Australian top ranking GC players from  all states.

Melbourne had most favorable weather so play was not inhibited in any way.
