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!
Ireland - Carrickmines 2014
South Africa, represented by Reg Bamford, Nick Harvey, Victor Dladla and Judith Hanekom were selected to represent South Africa in the World Team Championships held in Dublin during May. What a very special trip – we met up with old friends again and made many new ones.
Greyton Country Croquet Club News
As Greyton Country Croquet Club enters its second year of being a formal and official club it does so with great enthusiasm and continued support both locally and from other clubs, and of course SACA. Once again we wish to express our thanks for all the support and encouragement we get. We are a young club and have a lot to learn, but I think we will be a croquet force to be reckoned with in the near future.

The Allan Wilson Classic 2014
'A visitors birds eye view'
The first Allan Wilson Classic will be long remembered by all the participants for the friendly, happy and enjoyable atmosphere both on and off the courts.
The week started with a Welcome party on the Sunday evening. David Boyd, the Bowls President welcomed everyone to the club followed by Phyl Russell, Captain of the Croquet section. The games began the following day with Johan doing a wonderful job in chasing the players onto their respective courts. There were Referees in abundance, each court had a referee, which at times proved a bit too much for some, especially when mallets were held high in both games. Double banking always means delays but nevertheless all the games were finished at a reasonable hour at the end of each day.
Rondebosch Croquet Club Gateball
Despite a somewhat overcast day the Open day event on the 3rd of April was a great success. The children from Marsh are thoroughly enjoying it and clamoring to come again. There are a number of youngsters with great potential on the croquet side and were coached faithfully and tirelessly by Anne Oxton.
