  • +1

The WCF Women’s World Golf Croquet Championship 2023 will be officially opened by Dame Mary Berry.

To signify the opening of the Golf Croquet Women’s World Championship 2023, Dame Mary Berry cut a cake made by a local Sussex County Croquet Club player Peter Goldsmith. In her encouraging speeches she wished all the players good luck and admitted that although she thought her croquet was not up to the same standards, both herself and her husband “Love it”.

After being introduced to Croquet at her home club Phyllis Court Croquet Club, Mary’s was delighted to announce that her club coach, Helena Janson, is playing in this Championship. Both Mary and Helena were presented a bouquet of flowers by Sussex County’s youngest member, Imogen Perry.

Sussex Country Croquet Club welcome spectators for the entire event, more details can be found on the event website,

The Opening Ceremony of the WCF Women’s Golf Croquet World Championship can be found on YouTube/@Croquetengland.
