Croquet England Club Affiliation

For individual Croquet England subscription or subscription renewal, please refer to Join Croquet England.

Why Join Croquet England as a Club

Croquet England is run almost entirely by volunteers who give up their time to promote the sport and help in the administration. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to promote awareness of the sport in the national press and elsewhere, to organise a tournament circuit our members benefit from, to maintain the laws of the sport, to provide coaching and generally to help both new and existing clubs to develop and flourish. By joining Croquet England you will help us to maintain this effort, and be contributing to the wider croquet community.

Other club resources include the Club Guide to Croquet England, Downloads and Forms, and Advice for Clubs. Please contact the office for anything else.

The types of Club Affiliation are detailed below. If your club would like to join Croquet England, or has any further questions, please contact the office.

Affiliated Club

As an Affiliated Club, you will enjoy the following benefits:

The first-year subscription for an Affiliated Club costs £60.

In subsequent years, the subscription is based on the number of playing members in your club (excluding those who have told you that another club is their primary one). For 2024, the normal rate is £17.00 per head for adult members, but there is a discounted rate of £11.00 per head for clubs that have either a playing area significantly less than two full-sized lawns or significant external restrictions on their usage; and £5 for each under-25 member.

The fee is capped at £90 in the second subscription year, and £120 in the third; and is a minimum of £60 in all years.

Affiliated Educational Body

Schools and universities can enjoy a reduced flat rate of £40, which entitles them to the same benefits as Associated clubs, except that they can only register 30 of their members as Standard or U25 Standard Associates.
