East Anglian Croquet Federation (EACF) Golf Croquet Leagues

The East Anglian Federation organises clubs into Areas for various inter-club league matches. Matches take place either home or away over the course of the summer. At the end of the season the Area winners have a play-off to determine the overall East Anglian Region winners. There are typically six teams in our area and each team on the day comprises four players – selected from the available pool. Each match consists of two Doubles in the morning and four Singles in the afternoon. White clothing is required.

B-Level. Handicap of three and above. Level Play. Captain: Marian Manning.

Handicap. All handicaps. Handicap Play. Captain: Stephen Scrase.

Essex and Suffolk Association Croquet League

The Essex-Suffolk League is for AC players and was originally for those who were new to AC. Recently, because we have so few AC players, anyone who can play AC is welcome in the team. Other clubs also struggle to find players but we are all keen to keep it going. There are only 3 matches in the season, against Bury St Edmunds, Newport and Cambridge (Yes, I know that’s not in Suffolk or Essex!). We alternate between Home and Away matches from one year to the next. Four players are needed for each match on the day – selected from the available pool. Each match consists of one Doubles and two Singles in the morning and four Singles in the afternoon. The team is managed by Georgeen Hemming.
