Garth Beresford ( - 2017)

Garth was married to Anne and together they played a major role in South African and Gauteng croquet.

Greta Snaith tells me that Garth and Derrick Snaith were together at Parkview Primary School before going their separate ways and building their careers but they reconnected years later at the then Bruma Lake Croquet Club which went on to become Observatory, Croquet Club where they were joined by Hans and the Paton brothers, Patterson Park and eventually Golden Mallets which on the day I write this, decided to close its doors.

Garth and Derrick, with help from Hans, started Zoo Lake Croquet Club around 2000 and this went on to became one of the strongest Golf Croquet Clubs in Gauteng. Maria and and I joined in 2002 and Garth introduced me to the game and to Association.

As an engineer Garth had a fine sense of what was right and what was wrong and it was no surprise that he took on the Chief Referees role for SACA and was elected as a member of the World Croquet Federation Rules committee. He contributed to their deliberations and to the development of the 2013 set of rules. He told me that, like many players, he never understood how a player could crush against another ball. He was responsible for me eventually taking over as Chief Referee when he felt he had had enough.

He had a comprehensive work shop and woodworking tools and ability. He made much of the equipment used in those early days.

When travelling to Zoo Lake from his home in Boksburg became too strenuous and he was comfortable Zoo Lake was in good hands, those of John Rowlands, he found premises in Boksburg and started the Boksburg Club. When this moved to Avion Park he continued to take an interest in the activities of the club.

Garth was always available when I had queries or needed help with difficult situations.

His contribution to South African croquet was immense, never done in search of glory and always most humbly.

Our thoughts are with Ann and the family and our sense of loss real. You will miss him but so will we.
