GC Player Survey Report

A GC Event Survey was undertaken between March and May 2017. The survey was commissioned by Martin Clarke, Croquetwest Match Sub-Committee Coordinator. The prime purposes of the survey were:

• To get player feedback on what conditions various groups of players prefer in events; and
• To find out what type of events may increase participation in competitions.

Click here to see the outcomes of the survey. Thank you to all those who participated. Any questions or comments on the report, please contact John Doepel.

Vale Neville Giles (York Croquet Club)

York Croquet Club is sad to advise that one of their members, Neville Giles, passed away on Saturday 23rd December.
Neville was the member who gave the $10.00 prizes for the 2 hoops in 1 shot at York tournaments. Neville was a skilled player, but had a serious heart condition which stopped him from playing in tournaments. Although Neville’s health deteriorated recently he was still playing croquet only a few weeks ago.
