GC Modified ISO Doubles at Hutt Road

Another successful event at Hutt Road, 17th and 18th June. 28 pairs entered with a full range of handicaps. It was with great pleasure to see entries from Yankalilla and Victor Harbor and plenty of relatively new faces to competition.
Again, the event was mini round robins for each lawn and the winners won chocolates. The weather was fantastic, spirits were high and there were plenty of referees to assist players.

Who won the chocolates?

Wednesday morning
Jane West and Karen Magee (Brighton)
Ansi Baumanis and Colleen Lane (Victor Harbor)
Lis Robinson and Paul Wahlstedt (Holdfast Bay)

Wednesday afternoon
Kim Millhouse and David Darke (Millswood /Hyde Park)

Thank you once again to Kim Millhouse, Anne Woodhouse, Barry Jennings, Graeme Thomas, Jane West, Ansi Baumanis and Carolyn Cooper for assisting to run this event.

GC Modified ISO Singles at Hutt Road, 10th and 11th June

The Golf Croquet committee decided the best way to get back to croquet after isolation was to have an event that allowed lots of people to play, so we came up with Modified ISO Singles Well I don’t know if it was the catchy name, the lure of chocolate as a prize or the desperation for people to catch up with others or merely the enjoyment of the game.

Whatever it was, it was successful!

GC: Autumn 9+ Singles


The SACA 9+ Singles Tournament was played over two weeks at Hutt Road (3/3 & 10/3) and was remarkable for the close hard-fought games, with hoops hard to score, and most of the games failing to go to 7.
The result came down to the last game between Sara Kendrick and Peter Willis. Peter became the run out the winner with 7 matches to Sara 6, both having lost their penultimate matches. Congratulation to the Winners and to all the players who played in good humour.
A big Thank You, to the Referees – Karen, Graeme and Anne (So appreciated)

BRYAN DAWSON INDUCTED INTO WORLD CROQUET FEDERATION HALL OF FAME


The Board congratulates Bryan Dawson on his induction into the World Croquet Federation Hall of Fame by WCF President Ian Burridge of Wales, during the Opening Ceremony of the WCF Association Croquet World Championships in Victoria. Bryan has been recognised as a major contributor to croquet as the maker of the Dawson Ball, the premier competition croquet ball for over 25 years from the early 1990s.  Bryan retired and sold the business in 2017 to a fellow Australian who continues to manufacture Dawson Balls and export them all over the world.  A remarkable legacy for croquet from this SA player. He is pictured receiving his certificate by WCF President Ian Burridge (right) and WCF Secretary General Stephen Mulliner (left).
