Competitive Play


There are three Club tournaments each year, which are a good introduction to more competitive play.

Ordinarily our members do not hold handicaps and all games, including tournaments, are “level play”. Those interested in obtaining a handicap, in order, for example, to enter external tournaments or leagues, should speak to a committee member.

Inter-club matches

Friendly matches are played home and away with other local clubs.

Old College Croquet is affiliated to the Croquet Association (see here) and a part of the South East Croquet Federation. For further information on the SECF, see here.


It isn’t difficult to learn the game and reach a reasonable proficiency, but if you want to improve, coaching sessions are arranged periodically and are open to all members. Coaching sessions can also be arranged through the South East Croquet Federation (see above).
