The CNZ South Island AC Championship will be played in Canterbury Wednesday 12 to Sunday 16 December 2018. Headquarters is United Croquet Club and other clubs may be used if required. Canterbury players are encouraged to enter. You can enter via the CNZ website.
Events will be:
Singles 0 to 3
Singles 4 and over
Accommodation is needed for players entering the Championships. We are canvassing players right across the country to enter this event. As you will appreciate, travelling from another part of the country to play in a croquet competition may be a fair hunk of dosh, so we can make it easier for players to enter if some kind members of our croquet fraternity could host some players as billets for this event. Please let our Accommodation Officer know what may be offered. You may charge for a billet, typically between $30 and $50. To be negotiated.

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.
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.
