Thank you. I agree that ACA should provide the answers but I also
think that CNSW should be asking the questions and chasing ACA for
However, of particular concern at the moment is the CNSW pennants
series for which the closing date is advertised as 1st March, with
div 2 and 3 scheduled to commence on 13th March and finals after the
3rd April introduction of the new rules.
Therefore, we need, as a matter of urgency, answers to the
- What are the handicap ranges for the new divisions and how
many divisions will there be?
- In January 2014, a rule was introduced, whereby players on
handicaps of 10, 11 and 12 would not lose index points after
losing a game. There is no indication whether this rule will
continue or be rescinded.
Will there be a meeting of the CNSW Board during January? I note
that a meeting of the ACA Board is scheduled for 19 January.
I look forward to a speedy response from our governing bodies, so
that Golf Croquet players may plan the year ahead with confidence,
knowing that the rule changes for handicaps have been clarified and

As it is the ACA who are "in charge" of "and responsible
for" the introduction of the new system. The (good) questions
you have asked are probably being asked by other states and
should be answered directly by the ACA. The worse thing that
could happen is that CNSW or any other state association
issues any form of statement or ruling and gets it wrong. FYI
there were no real problems when it was introduced in the UK
(I was there when it was both in 2015 when it was being
trialled in 2016 shortly after it was introduced).
