Britain. He believes the American version of croquet requires more strategy and is a faster version, at about 70 minutes per game compared to the average two hours it takes to play the British version. Regulation croquet courts are 105 feet long by 84 feet wide and CBCC has eight. Each court has six wickets or hoops that are made of five-eighths inch steel and made to provide about one-eighth inch of clearance for the ball to pass through. You start the game at one end and try to score as many wickets as possible before time runs out. Good players can hit their opponents’ balls and send them to places on the court that allow them to score many wickets in one turn. There are four colored balls in the game, and they play in the order of blue, red, black and yellow. Blue and black play together as a team, and red and yellow play together. In singles, you would play both balls on a team and in doubles each person would play one ball.


If you hit any other of the three balls in play with your ball, including your partner’s ball, that is called a “roquet.” You then take your ball in hand and place it against the ball you hit and you get two more shots. White warns that you never, ever put your foot on one ball and hit it. That is a major no-no in the sport of croquet and not an advantage. The player first goes around the course in a clock- wise direction getting the ball through each of the wickets. The direction is reversed at the center stake and played in a counter-clockwise direction. White is quite expert at making the


croquet balls do incredible things. He demonstrated that he could hit two balls, one placed behind the other in what is called the “croquet shot,” and cause each ball to go just about anywhere on the court he wanted them to go. Croquet players can also jump their ball over other balls they don’t want to hit. That kind of expertise has placed him in the top ranks of Grand Prix croquet. For anyone interested in playing


croquet, White and the CBCC members encourage you to visit on a Wednesday or Sunday afternoon (after 1 p.m.) and watch or participate in a game or the social events associated with croquet play — like wine and wickets or cookouts on the grill. Priest points out that the CBCC has an active social agenda. CBCC has three major tournaments this year during
