The Egyptian Croquet Association has already organised two WCF World Golf Croquet Championships in 1997 and 2000. We hope that this event will be promoted by all Member Associations to their women players who play both Golf Croquet and Association Croquet. I feel sure this will be a great event and a great opportunity to visit such a unique part of the World. I will be happy to answer any queries from potential entrants.
