Golf Croquet is the most popular version of croquet played around the world. It is very easy to learn and play. All it takes is careful aim and a good eye! You have one shot each turn to try to score the next wicket or keep the opponent from scoring the wicket. Whoever makes it first gets the point and everyone moves to the next wicket in order. The first team to score 7 points wins the game!
Instructor: Robert Levine & Special Guests
American 6-Wicket is the most popular version of tournament croquet played in the United States. It can be a very strategic game that combines elements of golf, billiards, and chess, so you will have to think as well as shoot straight! Each player’s turn starts with one shot but can earn bonus shots for hitting another ball or making a wicket. The first team to score all their wickets and hit the peg wins!
Instructor: Rebecca Peterson
Super-Sized Croquet is a kid-friendly version of the game. It’s played with large flexible wickets, mini-soccer balls that can be kicked or hit with a mallet (depending on the age of the participants) and a meandering course layout. This youth program is focused on engaging and developing our 2- to 12-year-old aspiring players, teaching them new skills and just plain having a good time!
