A letter to the editor in the Swindon Advertiser, details what appears to be an unfair process for matching funds for the Swindon Croquet Club:
"... states that Swindon Borough Council has put up the matching funds which it hopes will materialise from British Cycling and the Football Association. The only mention of croquet is in a list of sports at the end of the report. However, the Swindon Croquet Club has already invested around £130,000 into improving croquet facilities at Moredon and yet the borough council will not match this funding (less than 4 per cent of the total investment).
Looks like another case where the sport's poor image hampers club development.
