Changes to Golf Croquet Ranking System
Two changes have been made to the Golf Croquet International Grading System, which are reflected in the 12 March 2008 ranking lists:
- Grades and indices are now based on the same scale as the Association Croquet rankings. An old grade/index of N will now be expressed as N x 10 + 1000. Hence, grades of 80, 100 and 150 will now be 1,800, 2,000 and 2,500 respectively.
- Appearance in the International and UK ranking lists now requires 10 games played in the last 24 months.
Discussions were held at Cape Town about the possible inclusion of Egyptian domestic data in the International Rankings. If this becomes reality, consideration will be given to adopting a variable alpha as currently used in the Association Croquet rankings.
