For three days – 25, 26 & 27 of September, the Australian Croquet Association’s South Australian Bronze Medal Tournament was held at Croquet SA lawns. The winner of this tournament would usually play off with the winners from the other states in the ACA Gold and Silver Medal Competition. Covid-19 will prevent this from happening in 2020 as players from each state cannot travel to Tasmania for it.
The competitors, as usual with this group, were good sports and great to manage.The Bronze Medal winner was Heath Jackson from Hyde Park CC (6 matches, net 7 games) and the runner-up was Barry Jennings also from Hyde Park CC (6 matches, net 6 games) and Ron McBride from Yankalilla CC came a very close third with 6 matches, net 6 games, but lost by 4 hoops to the runner-up.
It was a great tournament!
