2013 Silver Medal, Carrickmines 18/19 May

The 2013 Silver Medal was contested in Carrickmines C C on the 18/19th of May.
This is one of the CAI's top-tier events, and it provided the first AC tournament play of the season for several members of the Irish test team, as well as players playing against Scotland for the Appleton the following week. The tournament was also the first Irish event to employ the new croquetscores.com service provided by Tim Murphy. Scores were live online seconds as soon as they were in the managers hand!

Rankings for Golf Croquet available

The international rankings for Golf Croquet are now available and a page showing the Irish players has been added to this website, showing the Irish rankings.
There should be a link on the left of the home page and another under the Home/Information tab at the top of each page. I hope to be able to keep this list up to date and make its formatting a little more like the ranking list for Association Croquet.
