Guidance notes: NCD 2019 Guidance Notes for Clubs
Follow the download link for some tips gathered from previous year, collated by the Marketing Committee.
A suggested format for NCD is here: Two Ball Match-Play Croquet rules v1-1.
Two ball 'Match-Play' Croquet has been used successfully in a number of clubs at taster sessions and corporate events. It is a simplified hybrid of AC one-ball and GC scoring, can be picked up by beginners with little-to-no instruction, and takes up minimum lawn space compared to AC, GC or AC one-ball.
We believe this format gets newcomers on the lawn and enjoying themselves, and avoids the debate of whether a taster session should start with GC or AC. You can then follow-up this format with beginners sessions under your club's coaching framework.
We would be glad to hear from clubs who chooses to use this format on NCD or beyond.
