The Egyptian Croquet Federation has kindly agreed to host the inaugural Under 21 Golf Croquet World Championship which will take place in Cairo from Saturday 18th to Thursday 23rd July 2009 at the Egyptian Croquet Federation, El Gazirah Club and Cairo Club lawns. The event will be open to any player of a member association who is under 21 years of age on the 31st December 2008.
A range of accommodation to suit all budgets is being sourced in Cairo and further details will be made available in due course. Players will be met upon arrival at Cairo airport. The month of July is hot and dry in Cairo and to accommodate this, play will commence daily at 5.00pm. Players should be prepared to play under floodlight conditions whenever required to do so and well into the late evening. Non-playing supporters accompanying a player are especially welcome. No entry fee will be charged.
Anyone wishing to enter from the UK should in the first instance notify John Spiers john#spiersfamily.org preferably with any details of their playing record in 2008. The GC Selection committee will send a seeded list to the WCF. The closing date for applications shall be 21st January 2009.
