Silver Medal Award Winners

The Silver Medal marks a player's entry into the top echelon of croquet.

First awarded in 1896, and made of real silver until the mid-1930s, the qualification criteria barely changed until 2020 from when a player qualifies by reaching an advanced stage of a sizeable Grade 1 or 2 Championship, in either AC or GC.

Men's and Women's Silver Medals (for first-time winners) are distinct, with holders listed in the Roll of Honour. There used to be separate Gold Medal events for Men and Women, which, with the caskets, were incorporated into the Men's and Women's in 1935. The Gold Medal events pre-date The Croquet Association and were seen as two of the major championships at the time. The awarding of a silver medal to first-time Men's and Women's winners dates from the merge.

[1] In March 2020, Croquet England retrospectively recognised former GC Champions as having satisfied the achievement criteria for the Silver Medal.

[2] When a player satisfies the achievement criteria in either AC or GC but has already satisfied the criteria in the other code, the player does not receive a second Silver Medal.
