FOS|CQT. Charity One-Ball Competition

April 3 | 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

We are planning to hold a heat of the Croquet Associations Charity One-ball Competition on the Wednesday 3rd April starting at noon. Whilst this is a national competition (and there’s an opportunity to go to a national final if you want), its really a chance to get people together, raise some money for charity and have a fun day.

One ball is an easy game to learn designed to be played by players of both Association Croquet and Golf Croquet, with each game taking about 30 minutes.

Every year at the start of the season the Croquet Association holds a national One-ball competition with heats at club level. Depending on the amount of money raised each club can send one or more people to the national finals. This year the finals are being held at Nottingham (11th May) and Surbiton (5th May). The champion will get the first opportunity to attend the finals but if they don’t want to go (or we raise lots of money!) there will be opportunities for others to attend the finals.

The game is played using handicaps so everyone has a chance of winning and Non-Members are welcome to join in the fun! 

This year’s charity is the British Heart Foundation. There is no entry fee for the competition, but a donation of £10 is suggested (some clubs get very competitive about the amount they raise!). Donations are welcome even if you’re not taking part. Gift Aid forms are available if you’d like to get the government to top up the donation. The ‘house colour’ for the charity is red and so all participants are encouraged to wear something in this colour.

If you have more questions or want to enter please contact Stephen Mills (stephen@smills.co.uk) or use the sign up sheet on our Croquet board. Early indications of your intention to enter would be very welcome (so we can get an idea of numbers and hence competition format). Cut off for entries is 1st April (Easter Monday).
