Bristol Croquet Club Expenses

Inter-Club Team Expenses

The Club is keen to develop its players, and to encourage club members to take part in team matches and offsets most of the cost of playing matches.

The Club contributes towards the cost of travelling when a Club team plays an away match and the cost of lunch provided to our visitors for a home match.

Please use an expense claim form signed by the driver or lunch organiser.

Lunch Expense Claims

When a Club team is playing a home match, the Club contributes £5 per visiting team member towards the cost of lunch provided. The remainder of the total cost is shared between the members of the home team for that match.

Travelling Expense Claims

When a Club team is playing an away match, one driver may claim travelling expenses for a team of three or four, and two drivers may claim when our team comprises five or more players.

The club contribution is based on 20.0p per mile: 33mpg (=7.25 miles per litre) using fuel at £1.30 per litre = 17.9p per mile, plus 2.1p per mile for wear and tear.

The table below shows the calculation using Google Maps based on the quickest route to the away club and the shortest route back.
