Individual Croquet Association Membership

From this page, you can renew your membership or join the CA as an individual member by clicking the button next to the membership type you want.

If you are new to the game, your first step might be to join a club near where you live. Clubs can also be members of the CA - see the section join as a club. As an individual CA Member, you also get the satisfaction of putting something back into the game you enjoy.

Notes

Full, Introductory and Direct Debit Rates

By agreeing to complete a Direct Debit subscription, new Premium members pay a substantially reduced rate in their first year, and a reduced rate in their second year. This rate is available only for those who previously have not been Croquet Association Premium (formerly Tournament) member (or equivalent).

The Direct Debit rate applies for payments by Direct Debit from a UK bank and is available online to those who agree to complete a Direct Debit authorisation for renewal, otherwise the Full Rate applies and is payable by credit card or sterling cheque drawn on a UK Bank.

Paperless Rates

The paperless rates offer a discount for viewing The Croquet Gazette and Fixtures Book online, rather than receiving paper copies. To do so, you must register to login to the CA Website and you will be e-mailed when new editions are available.

Duration of Membership

Membership subscriptions are for all or part of a calendar year and fall due on 1 January. A new member joining on or after 1 August in any year, and paying the rate of subscription of the appropriate category, will be entitled to the benefits of that category of membership until 31 December of the following year.

Tournament Play

Competitors in CA Calendar Fixtures in England & Wales must be members of the Croquet Association, playing members of CA Member Clubs, or of World Croquet Federation Member Associations, with exceptions described in Tournament Regulation P1(a)(2). Premium, Overseas and Student members of the Croquet Association get priority entry to tournaments and lower tournament entry fees.

Subscription Rates

All subscription rates are those currently approved by the CA Council, which reviews subscriptions on a regular basis and these rates are subject to change.

Dual Membership (Not Available)

Dual Membership rates, for two people living at the same address, are no longer available, as they have been superseded by the paperless rates.

Registration for Online Tournament Entry

The membership changes agreed at the Special General Meeting held in March 2015 are to come into effect from a date, no later than January 2020, to be agreed by Council, once a new system has been developed to accommodate the expanded membership. Pending that, Council has decided that, as a concession, all playing members of Member Clubs will be able to enter tournaments listed in the CA Calendar, though with a lower priority and at greater cost than Premium, Overseas or Junior Members. If you wish to take advantage of this you will need to register as a CA Club Member.

Reciprocal rights are granted to members of other Associations that belong to the World Croquet Federation. If you wish to claim reciprocal rights to use the online tournament entry system you will need to log-in and so must register for a reciprocal rights account if you have not already done so.
