Note to Editors

Golf Croquet is a much simpler form of Association Croquet, for which the World Championships were recently held in London. The rules of Golf Croquet are very similar to those used for garden croquet and are such that the layman can immediately understand the tactics being employed. It is characterised at the higher levels of play with hard and fast shooting both to run hoops and remove opponents from scoring positions. This format of the game is growing rapidly in the UK at present.
