Please Complete the Croquet Association Survey
The Croquet Association has conducted an anonymous survey of croquet players every 5 years since 2002. The 2022 survey commences on Tuesday 22nd March and will be open until Friday 22nd April.
WHY ARE THEY CONDUCTING THIS SURVEY?
The survey can be completed on a PC, laptop or tablet (iPad). It is also compatible with a smartphone although a larger screen will make it a little easier to navigate. Please set aside about 25 minutes to complete the survey and when you are ready to begin, click on this link 2022 Survey of Croquet Players. You will see some straight-forward instructions at the beginning.
Don’t forget The Croquet Association is running a competition with a prize pot of £3000 to encourage Clubs to come up with initiatives to make them more welcoming to new members particularly those from diverse backgrounds. Please see attached letter for full details as to how to enter.
The Federation’s Publicity Officer, Jonathan Isaacs, is more than happy to help Clubs with ideas as to how to market themselves better particularly with a view to attracting new members. Please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tournaments for 2022
As you will have hopefully seen the Federation has a full programme of Tournaments for this year and we would particularly like to draw you attention to two new Tournaments being run this year.
These are the Short Croquet Tournament being run at Ealing on the 18th June and the GC Advantage Competition being held at Littlehampton on 23rd August using the new GC Advantage rules replacing the previous ‘extra turns’ system.
This will be your chance to try something new. More details can be found by following this link Events & Diary – South East Croquet Federation
