Peter Craven MBE

We were deeply saddened to hear of the sudden passing of our Head Judge Peter Craven MBE on March 25 2018.


Peter was a staunch member of the BTA for many years and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.


Peter competed in tentpegging for many years in the UK and abroad in internationals. He was a founder member of the British Tentpegging Association, formed the Yorkshire Peggers and was a one-man tent peg manufacturing expert. From spectator to competitor, mentor and trainer both in this country and internationally, Peter was truly passionate tentpegging.


In later years, he took on the role of Head Judge and, together with his beloved wife Dolores, were always willing to assist in any way at both local and UK-based international competitions.


He will be remembered for his generosity, hospitality and good humour.


His passing will be a huge loss to our sport. Our thoughts are with Dolores and his friends and family at this sad time.
