2018 ACWC - Reserve List

2018 Association Croquet World Championship


Reserve List 

The Reserve List will be updated using the latest 12 month Maximum Grades when a vacancy caused by a withdrawal is notified to the WCF.  A new list will be published when the vacancy has been filled.

The returned place will be offered to the player at the top of the list.  If that player is unable to accept the place, the place will be offered to the next player on the list.  This process will be continued until the place is filled.  Any player unable to accept a place when offered will be removed from the Reserve List but may reapply for admission if their circumstances change.

The Reserve List will also be updated whenever a player applies to be added to the Reserve List and at the end of September, October and November.

The Reserve List will close at midnight on the Cut-Off Date, Sunday, 17 December 2017.  After that date, vacancies will be filled by increasing the number of Qualifying Places.

The list was last updated on 17 October 2017.  Those who have dropped out of the Reserve List because they have not played 10 ranked games in the 12 months ended on that date will be automatically added back if they have played 10 ranked games in the 12 months ending on a future amendment date.

CLOSING DATE: Sunday, 24 September 2017
