Här kommer informationen från WCF om nästa års AC VM i London.
Anmäl intresse till mig innan 30 november.
I have pleasure in formally inviting you to participate in the 2023 Association Croquet World Championship.
It will be held between 15 - 23 July 2023 at clubs in south-west London. The lead club will be the Hurlingham Club, which will be the venue for the finals, but significant parts of the championship may also be held at Dulwich Croquet Club, Ealing Croquet Club, Roehampton Club, Surbiton Croquet Club and Woking Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.
The event capacity is 80 players.
The anticipated entry fee for this event is £153 per player. This is based on a rate of £17 per player per day for 9 days. This rate is subject to ratification by the WCF Council when the 2023 Budget is approved later this year.
A qualifying event will be held at the Sussex County Croquet Club, from 10-13 July 2023 and will be open to 32 players who have not been able to secure a place through their ranking, their national association or via a WCF wildcard. If the qualifying event is oversubscribed on the allocation date of 8 May 2023, places will be allocated via the WCF Qualifier Ranking list. In all other respects CA tournament conditions rather than WCF sports regulations will apply to this event. Information on how to enter this will be published early in 2023.
Full details of the above event have already been published on the WCF website and a dedicated Event website will be published soon.
I draw your attention specifically to the Response Date of Sunday, 4th December 2022. Please ensure you send me the requested information by this date.
