The East Anglian Golf Croquet Championship May 11th & 12th here at Colchester Croquet Club.

This weekend Colchester are hosting one of the English National Singles Championship Series. This is the top of five tiers of Golf Croquet Series in the Croquet England Fixtures Calendar, each a season-long competition that groups together certain tournaments of a similar class. Players can achieve direct qualification to the National Final by way of performance in a qualifying tournament.

On Saturday sixteen players come together for four blocks of four within which all-play-all in a best of three. On Sunday the top two from each block qualify for a best of three knockout with a consolation event for the remainder.

Among the participants, we have our esteemed Albie Willet, boasting a handicap of -2, and the lifelong Colchester member Rob Fulford, playing off an impressive -5. Notably, Robert holds the prestigious title of the current reigning AC World Champion, marking his sixth triumphant world championship win!

So, come on down to the club house at some point over the weekend, grab a drink and watch the stars of the England GC world in action. You are sure to pick up a few tips for our summer competitions.
