Over the hundred and something years of its life, the Sussex County Croquet Club has had an impressive collection of trophies for their competition programme.  Many have long since been disposed of (or lost!).  The following is a fairly complete list of trophies and their history. Any information on winners has been taken from The History of Croquet, [Col.] D. M. C. Prichard, London: Cassell, 1981 (now out of print).

This is work in progress.  If anyone has details to add please contact the Webmaster.
