Not only will the club host players from across the Wimmera, competitors will travel from as far as South Australia, Tasmania, Ballarat, Geelong, Wonthaggi and Swan Hill.  

Hopefully everyone will enjoy themselves. - Val Hanna

Tournament manager Val Hanna said the tournament would spread across 11 courts, due to a high number of entries. 

The club will use its own club greens as well as Kalimna Park Croquet Club greens on the second day and four of the Horsham Lawn Tennis Club courts. 

The golf croquet will kick off at 8.30am each day with six divisions and prizes for each division winner. 

Hannah said she hoped for nice weather. 

“Hopefully everyone will enjoy themselves,” she said.
