Individual Croquet Association Membership

You can join the CA as a directly subscribed individual member by clicking the relevant button below. If you are already subscribed you can renew your membership online.

Playing members of CA Full Member clubs are eligible for CA Standard membership, which is administered by each club's secretary.

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.

Notes

1. 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.

2. Paperless Rates

The paperless rates offer a discount for not receiving paper copies of The Croquet Gazette and Fixtures Book (both available online). You can register to go paperless by updating your personal details and can elect to be e-mailed when new editions are available.

3. Duration of Membership

Membership subscriptions are for all or part of a calendar year and fall due on 1 January. New memberships started on or after 1 August last until 31 December of the following year.

4. Tournament Play

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

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Dual Membership rates, for two people living at the same address, are no longer available, as they have been superseded by the paperless rates.

6. Registration for Online Tournament Entry

If you are a Member of the Croquet Association (which includes Standard Members registered by clubs) you do not need to create a new account to enter tournaments because one is created for you soon after your details are received by the CA Office.

The login process uses your email address (as notified by you or your club secretary) plus a password that you must set by following the instructions online.

If your email address is not recognised, you should contact your club secretary to make sure your details have been provided to the Croquet Association.

If you do not qualify for Standard Membership because your club is not participating in the scheme, you will need to join the CA as a directly subscribed member.

Reciprocal rights are granted to overseas-resident members of other WCF Associations that belong to the World Croquet Federation. If you wish to claim reciprocal rights to use the online tournament entry system you must register for a Reciprocal Rights account.

For more details or information, please contact the CA Office.
