Ramsgate Croquet Club's 1st International Golf Croquet Championship in
2000 proved so successful in that we were able to continue to attract World
Champions with our winning formula of good organization, excellent lawns,
good food and a friendly welcome for players and spectators alike each year
right through to the present day.
As a venture to introduce a wider public to the delights of Croquet at
the time of the millennium we decided to stage an International Golf
Croquet Tournament, not only would it attract champions from all over the
world - we hoped - but would be more easily followed by spectators as the
rules are less complicated than for Association Croquet. We were lucky
enough to get sponsors and coverage by Meridian Television and - most
importantly - World Champions!
The Club continues to hold their Golf Croquet Championship and still
attracts players from all over the United Kingdom
as well as some playing visitors from around the world. In June
2016 sixteen players enjoyed splended weather and first class croquet with
the tournament being won by John-Paul Moberly.
