Re: Reminder: CNSW Headquarters Member Survey - Please Complete by Monday 4 August
The question of Tempe – and anywhere else - as CNSW Headquarters has been discussed for as long as I have been involved in croquet [since January 1994].
There is no expensive headquarters for Golf, Bowls, Hockey, Basketball, Cricket – competitions and championships are played at various venues throughout the state or country.
Money spent on maintenance of Tempe courts could be shared among the hosting venues – standard of facilities at regional clubs could be improved and players outside Sydney would see our better players and have the experience of playing with or against them.
Division 1 Golf Croquet is currently being played at Forster, with the biggest entry ever – nearly 3 X the number last played in this event at Tempe. Every year there are listed state events that are not played because there are insufficient entries.
The little back rooms – with no kitchen facilities or hot water – are an absolute disgrace and embarrassment.
This is not a question for club committees, but for every individual member of Croquet NSW.

The Mosman Croquet Club will be discussing this at their next meeting on 9 August and will reply. The survey has been sent out to members but we must appreciate that a lot of new members have no idea of what Tempe is like or even have a valued opinion. If the time could be extended to just after 9 August, we will have had a discussion with older members who will have a better understanding of the issues. Personally I think it a good idea to have cluster clubs get together to discuss issues (there will be a difference between country and city perceptions) and ventilate opinions. Not easy. We do appreciate the survey and will get back to you after 9 August.
