Peter Parkinson (Rangiora) won the 2018 CCA AC Open Singles that was played at St James Park croquet club Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 January 2018. Marguaritte Rogers (St James Park) was runner up, losing only to Peter. There were eight players with handicaps from -2.5 to +2.5. The manager was Rodger Lane.
The start on Saturday was late as the heavy rain the day before had flooded the lawns and hoop setting had to be deferred until Saturday morning.
Most players found the tight hoops a challenge as well as the wind on Saturday. Sunday was a perfect day for croquet with the lawns drying out and becoming faster.
