GC Interclub begins Friday 5 October (12 Oct for division 1)
On Sunday 23 September 2018 South Canterbury and Canterbury competed in the annual AC inter-provincial.
The Canterbury team was: John Yarrall, Owen Evans, Ian Campbell, Neville Turner, Leo Van Oosten, Alan Cook, Sally Jeffcott, Marguaritte Rogers (Captain), Patsy Clegg, Carol Kidd, Bruce McLay and Rosalind Thomson.
A great day was had by all. So, Basil was once again retained by Canterbury after some well fought-out games. A huge thanks to Raylene Coles and her team from the Waireka club who hosted and kept us watered and fed. A big thanks to the South Canterbury team who challenged Canterbury in every way.
The tournament was played as doubles with three 2-hour games that stopped on the bell. The winning team is the one with the greatest number of hoops. Canterbury scored 196 to 159 for South Canterbury.
The final CCA calendar for the 2018-19 season has been released by Jonathan Hart.

About 50 people enjoyed the hospitality of Cashmere Club on Sunday 15th April. Unfortunately it was windy in Christchurch that day but as Cashmere is so sheltered play continued right up to the home-made afternoon tea which was very welcome.
Owen and Philippa presented the trophies and certificates and Howard Pettigrew photographed the recipients.
Owen thanked Cashmere and Presidents of Clubs and his Exec, and Joan Bradford was thanked for her work over many years for keeping track of trophies and preparing certificates.

The CCA GC Silver Badge tournament for all divisions was played at Holmes Park Croquet Club on Sunday 25 March 2018.
Clubs sent one representative in each grade after a playoff in their club.
After a cold and wet couple of days the sun shone on the players, the lawns were a credit to Holmes Park and we had a great number watching the 18 competitors. Again, it was a pleasure being hosted by Holmes Park.
The Premier (-6 to +2) was won by Jenny Clarke (United) with Jonathan Hart (St James) a close runner up.
Pamela Hurst( United) won the Senior Grade (+3 to +5) with Marguaritte Rogers St James) second on a count back.
Tim Slack (Holmes Park) won the Intermediate Grade (6 to 8) from Lyn Madgwick Cashmere).
Denise Mc Loughlin (United) won the Primary (9 to 16) with Tony Waters (Cashmere) runner-up.
There was some spectacular play in all grades and everyone enjoyed the day.
