SECF January Newsletter

  • Advantage GC
    As you may recall it was agreed at the Federation AGM last November that we would move to Advantage GC for the Handicap League this year.  It was also agreed that the Federation would provide some training for this new system before the season got underway.

    The Croquet Academy and South East Croquet Federation are proud to present Understanding GC Advantage Play by Roy Tillcock, a Zoom webinar on 31st January at 5:30pm
    – The CA have adopted GC Advantage Play for the 2023 season
    – GC All England Handicap will be played in this format
    – The SECF voted to use this variant of GC handicap play for its league competitions and a number of Clubs in the Federation are proposing playing Advantage tournaments

    So who better than Roy Tillcock to lead us through the correct approach to both organising and playing GC Advantage. It was Roy who masterminded the system and has spearheaded trials over the last two seasons

    It is strongly recommended that Club representatives, Team Captains, Managers and Players take some time to familiarise themselves with the requirements of Advantage Play

    If you would like to attend the session – which will be recorded – send and email to Richard Carline at to reserve a place. Book your place now as they may be limited.
