The 2023 Southport Festival takes place over the weekend 24-25 June with the following events being played over the period:

Advanced Rules AC
Handicap AC
Short Lawn AC
Level Play GC
Handicap GC

Clubs can enter a team in each of these events but are allowed to rotate the team membership through the weekend. This allows individuals the opportunity to play over both days, on just the Saturday, or just the Sunday; and a team’s composition can also vary through the day to accommodate the numbers who wish to play in an event.

It is a tremendous fun weekend where a serious amount of croquet – and some serious chat! – takes place. It’s a chance to catch up with old friends and to make new acquaintances across the croquet clubs of the North West.

If you are interested in taking part please can you contact either

Please contact Tom Grievson for both GC competitions or Robin Tasker for all AC competitions saying which competition you’re interested in playing and on which day(s); and also please tell us if you want to take the lunch provided (at your cost) by Southport which is payable on the day(s).

Please we need to know by Sunday, 21 May, to allow us to organise the Chester teams and to submit our application to the Festival organisers.

I do hope you can play!

Many thanks

Robin Tasker
