information on all clubs.
Report on Gauteng Tournaments - 2013
Two tournaments were recently held in Gauteng. On 26/27th October, the Open Door trophy was played for. This is for the top 8 or 10 golf croquet players in the province.
The following weekend, the Gauteng Association Croquet tournament was held. This included a visitor from Australia, James Temlett.
For both tournaments lawns A and B were used and the courts were fast and the weather was hot. Results were as follows:
2013 Association Nationals (11 - 16 Nov 2013)
The first week was for Association Croquet and there was a good entry of 14 players. Amongst these were players from Australia, USA and England (one from each), so four continents were represented. The weather was good until the Friday afternoon when an amazing deluge dropped 135mm of rain on Somerset West in a few hours. The result was roads flowing like rivers and ducks swimming on the croquet courts!
2013 Golf Nationals (18 - 23 Nov 2013)
A record entry of 62 players took part in the Golf Croquet week. The lawns were a bit slow on Monday following the rain storms and because it had not been possible to mow them over the weekend. Once cut, the courts were excellent and speeded up well with the hot sunshine throughout the week. There were lots of games to fit in as the blocks had been kept as large as possible.
