Felix Webby (Captain)

Felix first started playing croquet 5 years ago at the West End Croquet Club in New Plymouth. He originally got involved through the secondary schools’ competition and after a CNZ coaching weekend, he was hooked. 

Felix really enjoys the game as it requires both good decision-making and executing those decisions under pressure. Felix’s biggest successes are winning the 2017 U21 GC World Championship in Melbourne and reaching the semi-finals of the 2017 GC Open World Championship. He was also the captain of the winning Trans Tasman team earlier in 2019 and the World Team Championship will be another great opportunity for Felix to test out his leadership skills. Felix has finished his second year of medical school at Otago University and also enjoys basketball and mountain-biking. 

Duncan Dixon

Multiple winner of the CNZ National GC tournament, Duncan plays for United Croquet Club. He works in the events industry at strange anti-social hours (and is therefore likely to be found napping by the side of the lawn like an elderly croquet player). Duncan first started playing croquet whilst at Waitaki Boys High School when obliged to partake in a sport. So as croquet seemed to require low energy, Duncan considered that it was the perfect fit. Duncan was coached by the ever-patient Brian Monkton who was teaching maths at the school. At weekends, Brian often drove the boys early in the morning to interclub matches and tournaments in Timaru. If it wasn't for that kindness, Duncan likely might now not be playing as seriously. Outside croquet, Duncan enjoys watching films and looking after his cat, Nala.

Edmund Fordyce

Edmund is currently studying a commerce degree at the University of Canterbury. He has recently joined United Croquet Club after previously being a member of the Waireka Croquet Club in Ashburton. Edmund began playing with his father and has been playing croquet for roughly 9 years now. Edmund is extremely competitive and loves to play sport. Croquet is a perfect fit as Edmund has a heart condition which limits his ability to play contact sports and those requiring large amounts of physical activity. It is the competitiveness and strategy of the game which has maintained his love for the game. Achievements include being the CNZ GC National champion (twice), winner of the Bowl (5th) in the 2017 U21 GC Championships, CNZ U21 GC winner (twice), CNZ National Doubles champion (both GC and AC), a member of the winning Trans-Tasman team in April, and winner of the World U21 Championships in England. 

Josh Freeth

Josh Freeth is 23 years old. Josh started playing GC in 2014 and AC in 2015. In 2014, the year he started playing, he won the NZ U21 Championship. He also won the NZ U21 Championship in 2015, along with also becoming the U21 World Champion that same year. Recently, he came 3rd in the World Championships in England. In his spare time, Josh likes to make art and hang with friends.
