National Forest GC Championship Format

(Venue: Ashby Croquet Club, Moira, on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June 2019)

  1. The entries from the highest ranked 14 players will be accepted if oversubscribed at the allocation date (18th May 2019).
  2. Assuming a full entry of 14 players and favourable weather conditions, the format will consist of two blocks of seven, with each player playing 7 cross-block games and the top two from each block progressing to the semi-final. In the event of two players being tied on number of game wins, qualification places will be decided by playoffs if time allows.
  3. The semi-final and final will be best of three matches, whilst the remaining 5 players from each block will play the 4 other non-qualifying players from their block in the plate. The plate winner will be determined on the basis of all the games between non-qualifying players from both days. The 3rd/4th playoff will be a single 13 point game, likely played between the semi-finals and final.
  4. Time limits will not be used unless weather jeopardises the schedule. With 3 lawns and 14 players there will be one game sat out. It is expected that the block games will be completed on Saturday, with 49 games to be played.
