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.
Gauteng Tournament 2016
The tournament will be played at CCJ on the following dates:
Association: 24 to 27 April
Golf: 28 April to2 May
This means that only 2 working days will be used for each event.
We are still looking into the possibility of the golf tournament also being used as the croquet event in the SA Masters, which is taking place in Johannesburg at that time.
Entry forms and further details will be issued shortly.

13th December, 2015
Last weekend the croquet community lost, in sudden death, one of the great contributors to the game in the province.
Henrietta Heim was not only Secretary to the Cape Provincial Association for many years but ran most of the provincial championships with grace and patience.
She was also the tournament manager at the relatively recent national championships held in Somerset West.
Although primarily the secretary at Fish Hoek Croquet Club previously, Henrietta was always available to help with an encouraging word and was well informed in all the aspects of our game.
Henrietta will certainly be missed and our condolences and best wishes are with her family.
Allan Wilson Golf Croquet Classic
We will be hosting our annual Allan Wilson Golf Croquet Classic from the 11th until the 16th April 2016.
The welcoming cocktail party will be held on the evening of the 10th April..
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.
