Croquet Hall of Fame

History of the WCF Hall of Fame

At the inception of WCF in 1986 certain principles and objectives were established to promote the sport of Croquet throughout the world.

One of these is enshrined in the WCF Statutes :

(102.2.12) To make awards to those who have contributed to the achievement of the WCF's aims.

Many sports and professions recognise the leaders in their chosen field, either as practitioners or as supporters. This may take the form of the gift of physical tokens such as medals or trophies or by the presentation of awards or certificates of merit. All share the common theme of formally acknowledging those individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to the development and success of the activity.

The WCF Hall of Fame was inaugurated in 2005 in order to make regular awards to qualifying persons. It is a virtual concept whereby the inductees and their achievements are commemorated on the WCF website.

Specific regulations govern the operation of the WCF Hall of Fame and how candidates for induction may be nominated.

Nominations for the Hall of Fame

Each year, nominations may be made by e-mail to the WCF between January and the end of June. The candidates are then considered by the Hall of Fame Committee between July and September. The new inductees are decided and announced between October and December. To nominate someone for the Hall of Fame, please fill in the online form.
