The 2020 European Golf Croquet and Association Croquet Championships have been cancelled.

The host club, Budleigh Salterton Croquet Club, had been greatly looking forward to holding the GC championship but, in view of the coronavirus pandemic and the measures required to protect public health, has decided that it cannot safely host the event.

An event host has not yet been agreed for the AC championship and it seems difficult to justify pressing ahead with this event in the current circumstances.


The 2020 European Golf Croquet Championship will be held at Budleigh Salterton Croquet Club from Thursday, 21 to Sunday, 24 May.

Players are requested to be at the club by 0830 on 21 May 2019 for a Player Briefing.

Following the passing of the Response Date on 1 March 2020, 24 Membership Places have been awarded.  An additional eight Ranking Places will be awarded on 16 March 2020 to the players with the highest current grade at midnight on Sunday, 15 March 2020.
