COMPETITIONS AND TOURNAMENTS

Our Club fields divisional teams in the statewide and/or southern clubs pennants competitions for both Association Croquet and Golf Croquet. These are run by Croquet Tasmania. You can access details via the Croquet Tasmania menu that appears at the top of this page, or here on our site.

We also stage our own Club championships in different divisions. In addition, we conduct the following Association Croquet memorial events: the Max McLean and the Coralie Turner handicap events for men and ladies, respectively; and the Rene Hortle novice event for newcomers. These are held towards the end of the season.

Members are able to enter other state events as well as interstate, national and international events.

We encourage members at all levels of expertise to consider entering competitions during the season.

EVENTS IMPACTING ON SOCIAL PLAYING TIMES

The Club lawns will be needed for Pennant and other competitions at various times during the season (please see our Calendar). Unless one of the lawns has been withdrawn from use to be upgraded, there should be at least one lawn available for social play. 

At present, the plan is to have lawn B out during November and December 2017, and lawn A in February and March 2018.
