Hall of Fame
Members of the ACA Hall of Fame 2022
A Hall of Fame has been established for the Australian Croquet Association (ACA).
To raise the profile of, and increase the participation in the playing of, mallet sports in Australia.
The Australian Croquet Association Hall of Fame’s mission is to inspire future generations of croquet players by honouring the heroes of today.
The ACA Hall of Fame was established to make regular awards to qualifying persons who have contributed to the achievements of the ACA aims. It is a virtual concept whereby the inductees and their achievements and contributions are commemorated on the ACA website.
The inductees will include some of the greatest Australian players in the history of the game as well as people who have made significant contributions to the development and enjoyment Croquet and Gateball as administrators, coaches, or benefactors in Australia.
History of the ACA Hall of Fame 2022
Many sports and professions recognise the leaders in their chosen field, either as practitioners or as supporters. This may take the form of the gift of physical tokens such as medals or trophies or by the presentation of awards or certificates of merit. All share the common theme of formally acknowledging those individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to the development and success of the activity.

Each year, nominations may be made to the ACA until 30 September. A nomination received after 30 September will be considered in the following year. The candidates are then considered by the Hall of Fame Committee by no later than 30 November.
