Awaiting first win
The Committee has decided to introduce this
Rainbow playing scheme
- to help new members integrate into the Croquet
This is a scheme to allow players to contact each other for games in a social environment, but with the additional focus and motivation of winning games and moving up the Rainbow.
The main focus is on helping newer members get to know, and play croquet with, other members of the club.
It is aimed primarily at newer members and those with handicaps 11 and over (11+).
Participants in the Rainbow must be prepared to be contacted and offered a game by any other members in the scheme.
To register, please email Russell Robinson -
We do hope that you would like to join in the Rainbow, and hope that it will give you an opportunity to meet other members and improve your croquet!
- Madeleine Probert, Phyllis Court CC, Membership Secretary
THE RAINBOW - how it works
- Any member may join or leave the Rainbow at any time during the season.
- The Rainbow will run initially for the 2021 season to the end of September.
- Initially, any player in the Rainbow may contact any other player and offer them a game.
As the games progress a player may offer a game to any other player on the same level or up to TWO above them.
Therefore, you should be prepared to be contacted by any other player and, within reason, play a game with them.
- Participants will all start in the white area below the Rainbow; when you win your first game, you will move to violet;
when you win your second game, you will move to indigo, and so on through to red.
There is no penalty for losing a game, you simply stay where you are on the Rainbow.
- You will play one 13-hoop, singles game per session.
- Only the result of the first game will count for the Rainbow - you may continue playing until the end of your booked session,
but the results of any further games will not count.
- No two players may play more than two rainbow-qualifying games against each other in the season.
- When booking a court for a Rainbow game, you should declare that that is what you are doing.
- After the game, the results will be reported by the winner to Russell Robinson
who will administer the Rainbow which will be pictorially displayed on the website (as above).
- Individual results will not be published on the website or otherwise.
Only the current status of the Rainbow will be published (which will indicate how many games each participant has won, not how many they have lost).
It is important to understand this is not a competition
Participants may derive motivation, interest and, maybe, pride from moving through the colours, but there will be no "winner" of the Rainbow and no prizes at the end of the season.
However, it is an opportunity for all participants to get know each other in a social way!
