Current Work in Progress
CA Strategy and Policy
- Council Standing Orders and Practice Book (defines the committee's bailiwick)
- CA Strategic Aims linked from The CA Constitution - note that "The CA will:
- Promote the game of croquet to non players of all ages
- Develop marketing packages to support the growth of croquet from club start-ups through to major international events
- Use major competitions to raise the profile of croquet both nationally and locally through Federations and member clubs
- Continue to run the shop with the dual aim of providing a service to its members and raising revenue for the benefit of croquet.
- Develop and maintain a PR strategy aimed at attracting non players to croquet.
- Support growth and encourage competitive play
- Growth and Recruitment in the CA (Strategy) - note the Recommendations (for Marketing):
- The introduction, by the federations, of more local competitions, for both AC and GC players, designed to encourage players who have previously not tried external competitions.
- Especially support recruitment of the type of croquet player who is more likely to be competitive.
- Croquet is essentially a competitive sport and the CA should concentrate on promoting competition. This might include greater selectivity in respect of clubs which are to receive enhanced support from the CA,
- The CA should take a lead in formulating a Growth and Recruitment Strategy, which will not only deliver increased numbers of players but also the 'right kind of player'.
- In particular, the CA Development Committee should formulate a plan to introduce croquet into more universities, possibly working with university authorities to form new clubs which are also available to the communities local to them.
- The CA (through PR, literature, etc.) needs to emphasise the intellectual challenge of croquet.
- The CA is keen to spread existing good practices that encourage competitive play in clubs.
- Association Croquet Regeneration
- Committee meeting papers, minutes, etc.
- Members email list
