Historic Photo Gallery

The WCF would like to build up a gallery of old photographs. We think it's important that these are retained for posterity.

The WCF hope this page will grow over time. Please let us have any old collections you have, particularly of any 'famous' old players.  Names for those unknown would also be very much appreciated. To contact us email: secretary@worldcroquet.org

The Hunstanton Collection

Thank you to the Hunstanton Croquet Club for sharing some old photos. A lot of these were taken by the late Sarah Hampson. None of them, sadly, show Sarah herself, but we thank her for taking these photos.
