Bristol Croquet Club: Club Roles

Much of the work that keeps the club running well is done by members - we could not offer such excellent facilities and atmosphere in any other way. This section explains all of the major roles and the tasks associated with them as they are currently undertaken.

If you would like to help with any of these, or if you have any suggestions for developing them, please contact the current post-holder or a Committee member.

As volunteers, we work as valued members of a skilled and enthusiastic team and respect that everyone else is doing the same.

All the work undertaken is to ensure that croquet continues to be played in a safe, friendly and cooperative manner.

Note that most volunteers are not required to be Committee members, but if not on the Committee, they work closely with and report to the Committee, usually with a brief written annual report.

Please help to keep this page up to date: if you are here to find out who is responsible for something and fail, please say; if you are an organiser and something you do isn't listed here, please say so that the next person to fill the role knows about it.
