David Maugham Portrait

David Maugham was introduced to croquet by his father in 1981 when he was 12 and started playing competitively in 1985. He has won various singles honours including the British Open Championship, three British Men's Championships, five British President's Cups, the Sonoma-Cutrer World Championship 3 times, the Australian Open, the US Open and over 25 British Regional Championships. His doubles successes include four British Open Doubles titles (with Steve Comish, Chris Clarke, Mark Avery and Paddy Chapman) and four British Mixed Doubles (once with Jenny Williams, twice with Ailsa Lines and once with Gabrielle Higgins).

David has also been on six Macrobertson Shield winning Great Britain sides, and considers his best match to be the one in which he completed a TP to win the deciding game of the final match of the test against New Zealand at Christchurch in 2000 when the scores were level.

Outside of croquet, David works as the IT manager for a natural stone company; has a black belt in ju-jitsu; enjoys computer games; and practices modern jive dancing.
