With over 2000 participants, Croquet Cuppers 2013 was the biggest sporting event ever held at Oxford University to date.
Entries are now open for Croquet Cuppers 2014; please fill in the form at http://users.ox.ac.uk/~croquet/cuppersform.shtml.
Playing croquet is a great way to spend your summer in Oxford, whether you just want to relax and hit some balls about in the sun or you're aiming for a Half Blue.
Teams consist of four players. You don't need to have played before to enter; indeed most of the teams competing are novices! There is no limit on the number of teams per college.
As in previous years, the competition will run in a direct knockout format throughout next term.
This year 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!
There is a £1 entry fee per team, which at 25p a person is an absolute steal given what you get for it!
OUCC will provide coaching sessions for anyone in the university in the beginning of Trinity Term, about which details will follow. They are held at the OUCC's lawns in University Parks.
