2023 AC Women’s Qualifier – Cancelled.

11th December - Cancelled. No further entries were received into the qualifier, so with 6 places available in the main event and only 6 entries into the qualifier, all six go straight into the main event.

4th December - Due to withdrawals from the main event, the viability of the Qualifier is in doubt. CNZ and the WCF are in discussion to decide whether to proceed. A decision is expected by 10th December.


The qualifying tournament for the 2023 Women's AC World Championship will be held between 3 and 5 January 2023 in Wellington, New Zealand. The event is organised and managed by Croquet New Zealand on behalf of the WCF.

The entry fee is NZ $30. There are 20 places available.

The event will be held at Waikanae and if required Paraparaumu croquet clubs. Play is expected to start at 8:30am.

The event is capped at 20 entries and the format will be finalised once total number of entries is known. It is expected to involve block play initially and the management are aiming for three games per day.

Entries close on 19th December.

There are four places available for the WCF AC Women's World Championship, to be held in Christchurch, New Zealand, between 7-14 January 2023. Further places may become available if entrants withdraw.

Those who qualify will need to transfer into Christchurch ready to play on 7th January. They will need to pay the entry fee straight away and also provide the Championship management team with a short bio.
