Dear friends,

I am happy to share with you information about two international croquet tournaments in Latvia, that we very much hope to be able to hold this year. The traditional Baltic Open GC takes place for the 10th year, as always, on the first weekend of September. This time, it will take place at a new club in Ikskile with 3 brand new full size lawns and a clubhouse. Over the previous years, we have had a pleasure to welcome players from 10 different countries. Another event is the Anna Open Ladies GC tournament, hosted by the Sigulda Club with a new wonderful lawn. Please feel free to share this information with others. Looking forward to welcoming many of you this year again. Best regards,
