Welcome to this, the official site for all information on croquet under the aegis of the South African
Croquet Association, providing an outlet for all National and Provincial Associations, along with
information on all clubs.
Women's AC World Champs Report
This event was held in Nottingham, England from 25 July to 1 August, 2015.
South Africa, as a full member of the World Croquet Federation (WCF) was given two places. Initially these were going to be filled by Judith Hanekom and Silvia Dreyer, but unfortunately Judith had to withdraw, so Christine Wakeham took her place.
The setting of the Nottingham Croquet Club is superb. It is situated left and right of what used to be the grand entrance to Trent House, which is a vast and elegant house high on a hill in the background, beyond ornamental lakes and gardens. There are seven excellent courts.
2015 BOSS Report
Thanks to Henrietta Heim who dreamt up the Best of Seasons Singles (BOSS) competition for Fish Hoek, the sponsored event has been taken up by Rondebosch.
It is an annual handicap contest played over four Sunday mornings from June to September. This year it was calmly managed by Peter Johnson and attracted sixteen players from Rondebosch, Kelvin, Fish Hoek and Somerset West. The compelling attraction of BOSS is the interplay between high and low bisquers at singles.
2015 Gauteng Tournament
The Gauteng Tournament was played over two long weekends at Country Club, Johannesburg at the end of April and beginning of May.
We used one of the bowling greens as well as the best three croquet courts and they were all in good condition and quite fast. The weather was excellent throughout.
2015 WP AC Tournament
The Feb tournament was probably one of the best we have ever had and the spirit in which it was played was extraordinary. Special thanks to Dave Mundy and the “Mundy Bus Mob” - always entertaining, whether it was for good play on the lawns or a guaranteed laugh - a very special bunch of croquet visitors. With a large entry and all the lawns full the entire tournament thankfully the weather kind to us. Well done to all you took part and we look forward to 2016.
For the love of it!
