All players who take part in ranking (most level-play) tournaments are included in both world rankings and NZ rankings maintained by Chris Williams Click here. to view on this page. or at his website.
These are based on performance at ranking tournaments, with a minimum of 10 ranked games being played within the previous 12 months to appear on the list. Chris also operates an online database which is updated almost daily, and is mirrored at the WCF Click here to view on this page or visit his site: http://rank.wcfcroquet.org
A similar rankings system exists for Golf Croquet, and is maintained by Stephen Mulliner.
Managers of all AC level-play tournaments are encouraged to email their results to email@example.com
Chris spends many hours maintaining the database provides an excellent and very fast service for the world croquet community, each year inputting thousands of results by cvs file or by hand, so contributors of results are asked to bear this in mind in sending in results and corrections.
Results from level-play golf croquet tournaments should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in the world golf croquet rankings. A separate NZ rankings list is not kept, but can easily be read off the world information.
As an incentive for Association players to improve their playing standards Croquet New Zealand has introduced "Merit Awards". This scheme is similar to the British Awards which were introduced in the early 1990s.
Awarded for the first occasion in a tournament that a player completes a break of 10 hoops or more, using bisques.
Awarded for the first occasion in a tournament that a player makes a break of 12 hoops or more, without bisques. (Hoop points can include peels on partner ball, and peg points count.)
Awarded for a triple peel.
Awarded for a sextuple peel.
It is the responsibility of a player to be aware if he/she has made the requisite standard.
However, tournamnet managers know the criteria so they can make players aware if they think a player has achieved an award during a tournamnet.
All enquiries for an award should in the first instance go to the National Office.
