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.
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.

Rondebosch CC – Gateball - 30 August 2014
Caroline Burr writes:
What a day we had yesterday with over 30 children ranging from 5 – 16 coming out to play gateball at Rondebosch.
The majority coming from Marsh memorial homes, plus a number of visiting children from grandparents and friends within the croquet world. Mums and carers got involved, and great fun was had by all. It was a perfect day weatherwise! I was a tad worried with Barry Weisner and Clare Stableford being away, that I almost threw the towel in at the last moment!
I am so glad I didn't as we truly had the best turn out we have had to date, and everything ran like clockwork. Thanks to Peter x 2 Jean, Helena, Anne and Andrew. We had a team of almost all teenagers that Peter Meakin and Andrew Peters ran, and from what I have heard it was a killer game! Anne Oxton ran a great croquet coaching on the side with a number of local children that are eager to learn the game!!!! Exciting!
