The Worshipful Company of Glovers of London organises the Inter-Livery Golf Croquet Competition. Whilst it is an open competition, a maximum of 36 teams (with two people in each team) can be accommodated, which may mean limiting the number of entries that can compete in the beautiful surroundings of Sussex County Croquet Club, in the village of Southwick, to the west of Brighton. 

The competition offers liverymen and their guests the opportunity to play golf croquet in the company of others and, although competition for the Glovers' Cup is intense, the day offers those less familiar with the sport the chance to try their hand as well in the Inter Livery Challenge for first-time or occasional players for whom explanation and direction will be provided.

With its eleven immaculate lawns and pollarded lime trees, Southwick is one of the most prestigious croquet venues in the world. The Golf Croquet World Championships were held at this venue twice in recent years. Lunch will be provided.
