Quarry Hill Croquet club is hosting the Victorian Golf Croquet State squad this weekend for a series of training sessions.
The elite squad will train at the club on both Saturday and Sunday in preparation for the Inter-State Shield that will be contested later this year in Tasmania.
Victoria is the current holder of the championship shield and will look to retain its glory when competing in test matches against the other states.
However, the team has plenty of work to do as five or this year's squad have never represented the state before.
The plan is to buckle down for a few months of solid training which includes sessions this weekend building new doubles partnerships, sharing of knowledge, with the overall goal to improve playing skills.
Quarry Hill's own Chris Eiffert was a reserve for the team in 2019 but this year has stepped up to the main squad and will play her first interstate test representing Victoria.
