Ted Prentis

From USCA President Sara Low:

It is with deep sadness that I have to report the death of Teddy Prentis. Teddy was in Bermuda playing croquet, doing what he loved most, when a tragic road accident took his life this morning.

A giant in the croquet world, Teddy was inducted in the U.S. Croquet Hall of Fame in 1989. Throughout his life, he held eight USCA National Titles and served as Director of the USCA’s National School in addition to winning or running an uncountable number of club tournaments and teaching positions. We all loved him for his athletic ability in the sport, his knowledge of and position within its history, his commitment to teaching us to improve our play and his great sense of humor.

You will always be a player of distinction, Teddy. We will miss you terribly.

Michael (Charrier) and I first met Teddy at the NY club approx 30 years ago. Besides being an excellent player and instructor, he was an intelligent being on any subject, a witty raconteur and a delightful friend. As much as he gave to croquet (and that is enormous) he gave even more to life. We were to see him again in the states next week but now it will be a very somber time indeed. We will miss you, dear Teddy, till next we meet.
