Each player will play as an individual and the format will include progressive doubles with a change of partner after each game. Games will be timed and in the initial rounds of each stage of the competition they will be completed after running all of the first seven hoops or when time is called.
  7. Full rules and regulations will be provided on acceptance of entry.
  8. Eligibility: Open to anyone with a handicap of 9 and above or who has never been awarded a Golf Croquet handicap at the time of entry. Any player who has played in the national final on two occasions is NOT eligible and should consider entering Centre Stage.
