Eugene at the AC World Championships
Club member Eugene flew to Florida earlier this year, attempting to qualify for the 2016 WCF Association Croquet World Championships via the World Championships Qualifier immediately beforehand. He earned the 80th and final spot in the Championship, where he went on to finish 9th in his group. It was a really great opportunity to meet and learn from the best croquet players around the world. The event was eventually won by 62 year old Stephen Mulliner of Surbiton Croquet Club.
The 2016 AC Inter-Counties Croquet Championship
Eugene was also in action at the AC Inter-Counties Croquet Championship over the late May bank holiday weekend, representing Middlesex in Division 1.
Eugene has been selected to play for the English Croquet Association (CA) vs the Croquet Association of Ireland (CAI) over 20-21 August, 2016, and also the CA vs Scottish Croquet Association (SCA) match over 3-4 September this year. Best of luck to him!
