Tournament Details and Entries

This page shows the current details of the various events (other than leagues) run by the SECF. It provides similar information to events in the CA Fixtures book, plus the latest entry situation and other tournament instructions. The dates, locations and entry fees are shown in our Diary.

Reports of previous events and winners can be seen via our History page.

After initial entry at the beginning of the season, all queries should be sent direct to the nominated manager given below unless it concerns new entries or cancelled entries where fees are involved. In these cases please email info@southeastcroquet.org.uk.

Please note that we attach particular significance to the person each club nominates as event contact, as information will only be sent to this person. We ask that you choose someone to take on the role who is actually involved in the team and also regularly uses email, as we may want to get in touch in a hurry to all participants. You may change the contact as often as you like, but please notify info@southeastcroquet.org.uk when any change is made.
