SA has two Croquet World Champs!

Judith Hanekom from Somerset West Croquet Club has just returned from Cairo where she played in the Women's World Golf Croquet Championships.
After qualifying for the knockout stage, she then proceeded to beat four of the world class Egyptian lady players on her way to the final.
In that final, she met Jenny Clarke of New Zealand, who for a number of years has been hailed as the best female croquet player in the world in both Association and Golf Croquet.
In a very close best of 5 final, Judith came out the winner and is therefore the new women's world champion.

At the last World Croquet Championship which was also held in Cairo in April 2013, Reg Bamford, also of South Africa, won the title. Reg has been an icon of world croquet for a number of years and had previously won the World Association Croquet Championship several times but that was his first Golf Croquet individual world title.

South Africa therefore has both the World Open and the World Women's titles which is an amazing achievement for a country with around 20 active clubs compared to the hundreds of clubs in many of the other croquet playing countries of the world.

SACA Nationals 2014 (Summary)

The Nationals were held at Pietermaritzburg for the first time in 28 years. Sadly the Association event had to be postponed or possibly cancelled because of a very small entry, but there were 39 golf croquet entrants from all over the country.
Maritzburg CC has three regular courts and in addition were given the use of a bowling green by the Bowls Club which adjoins their premises.
The Committee and Members of the host club worked very hard to organise an excellent tournament. In particular, Tim and Alison Lewin, who were Tournament and Venue Managers, have to be congratulated on the part they played in making the
whole week such a success.
Two of the local schools (Wykeham Collegiate and Cordwalles Prep School) sent students to provide teas and watch the games, and a number of articles covering the championship appeared in the local press.

The results were as follows:

Peter Millson (1925 – 2014)

Peter Millson is one of the better known names in croquet in South Africa
- both for Golf Croquet and Association Croquet.

He is known not only for his prowess as a croquet player (across both disciplines of
the game) as many Somerset West club and SACA national croquet competition
trophies will attest but he is also known as a "top performer" in terms of the
good of the game – at all levels.

Peter Millson represented all that is good about the game of croquet.
He was competitive, fair, decent, fun (with added British humour), always
generous, a thinking man and a wily player. Peter, along with most of the players
of that era, carried the torch of chivalry - regardless of the score line !

He was a great friend to have and for those fortunate to know him well he was
a great mentor (on and off the lawns).

His passion for the game and the people that he played with (and against) never
wavered. He was one of the true gentlemen that helps make the game of croquet
stand out from other sports. He and his reputation will be missed by many for
many years to come.

I hope that there is a Heaven because people like Peter deserve to keep on playing
the game he excelled at for so long – forever.
