Croquet Association [CA] Tournaments
Many clubs, including Sidmouth, run tournaments for other Croquet Association members to compete in and the CA sponsors several major tournaments which clubs host on a rotational basis. The CA's A5 handbook 'The Fixtures List' runs to 200 pages and a player can find tournaments to match his handicap and preferred code of play the length and breadth of the country. These events maybe weekends or as long as a week.
If the bug really bites you can travel far and wide playing croquet. We recently sent a team to Austria and Ireland but individual entry is possible Corfu, South Africa, Australia and \new Zealand , quite popular in winter, and America plays both modern croquet and an older version. One things for certain - you will be made very welcome wherever you play.
