Croquet Cuppers 2013
With over 2000 participants, Croquet Cuppers 2012 was the biggest sporting event ever held in Oxford University, and this year it could be even bigger! Once again, the Croquet Association has generously provided prize money - there will be champagne for the best teams and lots of other prizes for the high performers!
The tournament is starting in first week of Trinity term, entries should be submitted to College Captains or the Cuppers Director Fred Woodcock(QNS) if your captain is unresponsive, incorrectly listed, or non existant. The deadline for entries was April 1st, but late entries will be accepted either until the draw is full, or until April 17th, whichever is sooner.
The competition will be run predominantly through email, as in previous years, with both results and details of each round's matches relayed through the draw website.
As Cuppers is such a huge competition, we run it to a very tight schedule. Deadlines will be strictly enforced, although reasonable requests for extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Cuppers Director. Please send results of your matches to the Cuppers Director Fred Woodcock(QNS).
Once again the Oxford University Croquet Club will be inviting all students to join us at the University lawns for free coaching sessions on Tuesday and Thursday at 5pm for the first four weeks of Trinity Term, so that even complete beginners can have a good chance of progressing in the competition. All you need to bring are flat soled shoes. All students can also join the University Croquet Club: from £13 a term you will get the use of the high quality University lawns, extra coaching at a more personal level and can play in the club's fixtures.
