GC Golf Croquet

National The Golf Croquet Inter-Club Championship is a national competition sponsored by the Croquet Association. It is the top tier of national inter-club competition for Golf Croquet. Matches take place over 1 day, teams consist of four players, and there are no handicap restrictions.

Watford entered this competition for the first time in 2014, and did remarkably well to reach the national final. BUT In contrast, in both 2015 and 2016 we were knocked out in the first round. We did not participate last year.

The competition format is a standard knock-out.
