As a repeat of last year, the club staged an internal one-day Association Croquet One-Ball Tournament on Thursday 8th April.
The One-Ball game is a variation of Association Croquet in which each side only has one ball instead of two. In other respects the normal rules of Association Croquet apply, i.e. you can roquet and take croquet from your opponent's ball, and use this to help to make hoops. However, with only two balls in play, the games are typically quick and breaks are much harder to execute than in the full AC game, so the character of the One-Ball game is a bit more like Golf Croquet.
Format: Flexible Swiss
Start time: 11:00
Manager: Ian Parkinson
The weather gods were finally in a good mood after a long cold winter, and an entertaining day of
one-ball croquet was enjoyed by the 14 participants in glorious Spring sunshine.
Winner: Geoff Johnson
