Cuppers


Last Year's Winners

Cuppers croquet is the annual inter-collegiate croquet competition. It runs throughout the Easter term and comprises five or six rounds of knockout doubles play.

The tournament is sponsored by the Croquet Association.

The standard of play is relaxed and overall fairly low, so those new to croquet are likely to get a couple of enjoyable games in a friendly yet competitive environment. Last year’s champions, Emmanuel, have largely graduated, so the tournament is wide open!

To enter:

  • Create a team of four players;
  • Nominate a captain;
  • Register your team by filling in the Cuppers Registration Form
  • Pay the entry fee of ¬£8 per team.
