Welcome to the South Coast of England for a return visit of the Golf Croquet World Championship after 15 years.
As the Championship now includes more players we've had to expand the number of playing locations, so you'll be able to explore more of our lovely countryside!
I'm sure everyone at all our locations will make you very welcome and that you'll enjoy your time in England.
Jonathan Isaacs, Chairman, Organising Committee

The Championship is a singles event with three consolation events, details of which can be seen on the Schedule page. Reg Bamford from South Africa is the defending champion (pictured above) - other Previous Winners can be seen on this page.

Spectators and Visitors

Spectators are very welcome at all locations, on the purchase of a Championship Programme.

At Sussex County & Compton there will be plenty of space so visitors are encouraged to come as small groups or even as coach parties. Parking provision will be made at both venues for cars, mini buses and coaches.

At Royal Tunbridge Wells and West Worthing due to space limitations we may have to restrict the number of spectators.

Those planning to visit are encouraged to bring their own seating. Catering facilities will be available at most locations. Fuller details will be published on this website nearer the event.
