Why Join the CA as a Club

The CA 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 the CA you will help us to maintain this effort, and be contributing to the wider croquet community.

The types of Club Membership are detailed below. For more details, and to apply for Club Membership, please contact the CA office.

As a Full Member Club you will enjoy the following benefits:

The first year of Full Club Membership 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).

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

Educational Body Membership

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

Affiliate Club Membership

Affiliate Club membership is available to groups formed primarily for purposes other than playing croquet (e.g. Women's Institutes, Livery Companies, etc.) but which make occasional use of a Full Member's facilities to enjoy the sport and wish to be part of the Association. It costs £45 per year, and gives you:
