HomeRegular Tournaments

The tournaments below are one-day or multi-day events. These tournaments range from a season opener to learn the game, to fun-filled days with social time following the games to the premier Association Rules Croquet (AC) event in Canada. 

The tournaments are singles or doubles (partners). Each tournament has a small fee to contribute to tournament and club costs. 

Four tournaments are open to both Full and Social members and two are Full members only. 
There are 2 draws/rounds - players have about 6 weeks to complete the games in each round. The games singles and are arranged between the players for a date and time that is convenient for them. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the player listed first in the draw to contact their opponents.
In the first draw, all players play on an equal basis. Players are then sorted into a Championship block or an "A" Flight block based on the first draw results. Trophies are awarded to the winners of both Championship and "A" Flight tournaments. Full members may participate. There is no fee for these tournaments.
