Special Conditions:
For this course
  1. You have been playing AC for at least a year, and your handicap is 18-24. At this stage you know the basics, but your shots are inconsistent and the balls frequently don't go where you want them to! Too often simple hoops are blobbed and 'dead cert' roquets are inexplicably missed! As for breaks, they don't come easily, and you regularly breakdown without scoring many hoops. If only you could get those bisques to work for you! But how do you set up breaks and keep them going?
  2. We have all been there! But here is an opportunity to significantly improve your game by learning to play croquet the 'Easy Way', which simply means focusing on the few key factors that can dramatically improve your shot making and hoop scoring by setting up and running 4 ball breaks.
  3. The course is run over 2 separate days to give you time to practice what you learn on Day 1 (25 April - shot skills & the 4 ball break) before going on to further enhance your skills and tactics on Day 2 of the course (20 May - tactics for building & maintaining breaks). Each day is fairly intensive, but there is a comprehensive reference pack and practice guide to help you after the course.
  4. Although the 2 days are complementary, you may book on only 1 of the 2 days if you wish. There is a discount for those attending both days.
