A previously announced doubles competition was dropped in favour of best of three playoffs for the prize monies and for the first time playoffs between the bottom four finishers in the block for 5th through 8th places. We want to provide more singles games and give the players a daily lunch break as well.
Players will start arriving September 2 to get rid of jet lag, practice, play golf, swim and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and hospitality of The Resort.
Regular reports will be posted on CroquetWorld.com and from time to time on Wyoming and Nottingham.
Anyone who wants to predict the order of finish send your guess to me, arkleyta#open.org, before the start of the event. The winner receives a prize from our farm kitchen and a fantastic croquet print!
