The Atkins Competition is a Handicap Doubles Golf Croquet Tournament played over a number of Saturday mornings in the second half of the season leading to a play-off in March. It often allows an inexperienced player to be mentored by an experienced player to assist in learning tactics and stroke play.
The competition, started in the 2009/2010 season and honours Beryl and Ray Atkins who were involved in the early stages of the development of Golf Croquet in Christchurch at the Elmwood Croquet Club and then at Cashmere.
The 2018 competition is organised as four block of 9 teams each. Block play is on Friday 10, 17 and 24 February 2018 with playoffs Friday 3 and 17 March 2018.
