Golf Croquet

Golf croquet

Golf Croquet is a much simpler and quicker version of the game, but can be just as exciting. it has a completely different set of rules and tactics.

The object is to score hoops in the same order as in Association Croquet. There are no extra turns for going through hoops or hitting other balls although opposing balls can be knocked out of the way. When a player scores a hoop, all play is then to the next hoop.

The first player to score seven hoops wins the game, which usually takes 45-60 minutes.

The GC Selection Committee is always keen to see players seriously endeavouring to improve.

THE BEST WAY TO IMPRESS THE SELECTORS AND THEREFORE COME TO SELECTORS' ATTENTION IS TO PLAY AND PERFORM WELL IN MAJOR TOURNAMENTS.

For example the Victorian Open, Victorian Women's and Men's, ACA Open, ACA Women's and Men's and other state and international events etc.

Please take advantage of the VCA's coaching system to help you improve and reach your goals.

Congratulations to our team who won the Lefel Shield today for the team with the most hoops at the Golf Croquet Regionals. It was a great team effort with all three contributing well.
