Message from the Board

With great excitement many of us have been following the World Croquet Federation AC World Championships played in Wellington NZ over the last 2 weeks.

Players Alison Sharpe (Killara), Nick Chapman (Canberra), Stephen Richards (Canberra), Alan Honey (Queanbeyan), Tim Murphy (Canberra), Trevor Bassett (Independent), Alan Walsh (Cammeray) and Jim Nicholls (Wagga Wagga) all proudly represented their Clubs, CNSW and Australia in this event.

In just being at the Worlds all players have demonstrated their strategic and tactical mastery of the game providing inspiration to others.

On behalf of the CNSW Board and all of the CNSW Croquet community, I express a hearty congratulations to all these players for their showing in this highly competive international field. Special congratulations to Jim Nicholls and Stephen Richards who both qualified for the final knockout round.
