GC A-Level Series

The CA's golf croquet A-Level Series is part of a hierarchy of competitions that group together certain tournaments of a similar grade. Players are rewarded for their achievements in Series tournaments, by the awarding of points that can lead to a National Final or can achieve direct qualification to a National Final by dint of a qualifying tournament victory. Note however that the A-Level Series is a straight 'points race' with no National Final.

The hierarchy of Series tournaments is:

  1. The English National Singles Championship (8 Open tournaments leading to a National Final for the 'Ascot Cup')
  2. The National A-Level Series (10 Open tournaments - A straight 'points race'. There is no National Final)
  3. The National B-Level Series (24 tournaments restricted to handicaps 3+, leading to a National Final)
  4. The National C-Level Series (21 tournaments restricted to handicaps 7+, leading to a National Final)

Points Totals 2019

This is the 'leader board' of points accumulated by players in the qualifying events from finishing second (6 points), third (4 points) or fourth (2 points).

New rule for 2018 onwards - If a third/fourth place play-off is declined by one player but not the other, the player willing to play will be placed third and the unwilling player fourth (with Series points awarded as above). If neither player is willing to play a third/fourth place pay-off, BOTH players will score only 2 points.

The A-Level Series winner shall be the player who has accumulated the most Series points in the season. If there is a tie on Series points after the last tournament, the Series winner shall be the player who has scored the greater number of tournament wins, followed (in order) by the greater number of second, third and fourth places.
