Australia and New Zealand are two countries close in so many ways, yet, when it comes to sport there is a fearsome rivalry.
In keeping with this tradition eight of Australia’s top Golf Croquet players – Peter Landrebe (Captain) NSW, Kevin Beard VIC, Chris McWhirter WA, John van der Touw VIC, Wendy Dickson VIC, Rosie Landrebe NSW, Anne Quinn VIC and Alison Sharpe NSW – fly across the Tasman to Nelson in New Zealand’s South Island on Friday to play for the inaugural Golf Croquet Trans-Tasman Trophy.
Our players have been preparing for several months and they are ready to go into battle and vie for a place in the croquet history books.
Who will hold the Trophy high in six days time?
Follow our compatriots as the action unfolds on Croquet Scores and we wish them luck and best wishes. May the best team win.
