cbs The Court Booking System provides a hosted multi-club booking service for croquet clubs. It has been in use by several clubs in the UK for 10 years, and has now been extended for multi-country and multi-language use, catering for all WCF member countries. Each club has its own booking environment within the system. Users can only make bookings at their own club and see their own club’s membership list, and can’t see membership lists at other clubs, but booking summaries can be seen without the need to log in. Club administrators can control all aspects of bookings at their own club, and manage their own membership lists. There is also a Demonstration Club available in all countries for experimentation.

cb logo Croquet Booking provides a booking system hosting service for croquet clubs worldwide.  Each club has its own section on the website, which can be given its own colour theme and logo to tie in with the main club website.  Users can only login to the clubs of which they are members.  Multiple languages and time zones are supported as well as configurable booking policies and email notifications of bookings with calendar integration.  A club can also create more than one area, allowing, for example, one area to be created for the lawns/courts and another for the clubhouse rooms, with each area having its own booking policies and configuration.  Maintenance of the software is carried out by Croquet Booking; club administrators are responsible for managing users and lawns/courts.

Facility Guide This guide from Croquet Victoria is intended to assist with the development of a croquet club and in particular the planning process. However it could also likely prove useful to those seeking to establish croquet at a venue alongside or as a successor to other sports. Croquet Victoria is happy for it to be adapted for use by others with an acknowledgement where this occurs. Club Development

FAQs

I am having problems downloading the spreadsheet? 

As the spreadsheet contains macros you may have have to amend your virus software settings to allow it to be downloaded.  For example, With Norton anti virus software, Excel can give a 'file corrupt message' if opened automatically after the download but opens it OK if you subsequently manually open the file from your download directory.
