GC Golf Croquet

National The Golf Croquet Inter-Club Championship is a national competition sponsored by Croquet England. 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. In contrast, in both 2015 and 2016 we were knocked out in the first round. In 2022 we reached the final again, losing to Roehampton, and last year we reached the semi-finals where we lost to Dulwich.

The competition format is a standard knock-out.
