This is my 2nd WCF Golf Croquet Championship held in NZ,  having competed in the event held at Hawkes Bay.  Having just competed in my 5th Womens World GC in Egypt, it is a pleasure to be competing in my home club, Mount Maunganui, renewing friendships and introducing others to the fantastic facilities in the Bay of Plenty.   I am on the organising committee for this event along with my father, Geoff, who is also Tournament Manager. I a supportive husband and 3 children, one, Ashley who also played in the WCF Women’s in Cairo with me.  Having just moving into a new house, along with Tournament convenor for CNZ, kids moving flats and countries, life is a but chaotic
