The Australian Croquet Association Has Announced their Golf Croquet Players Selected to Play in the GC World Team Championship, Known as the Openshaw Shield

Chris Clarke, Chair of Openshaw Shield Selection Committee for the Croquet Association in England, has responded to the Australian Croquet Association's recent announcement of their 2025 World Team Championship squad.

He says "It's good to see Australia with a potentially very strong team, with a mixture of playing styles within their squad. We'll be selecting our team after the GC World Championships in 2024, and will be announcing our squad after the England-Egypt match in October 2023. We do not have a captain for the Openshaw as yet."
