Clarke: Plenty of Upsets on Day One #02

After visiting all five venues on yesterday's practice day, I spent most of day one at Waikanae with a short visit to Plimmerton in the early afternoon.

White Wins Florida GC Regional

The National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach, Florida was the site of the 5th Annual USCA Florida Golf Croquet Tournament January 12 – 14, 2018. A record 32 players took to the lawns for three days of singles and doubles competition with a total of 119 matches played! It was wonderful to see a number of new faces enter the ranks as well as others from across the country and southern hemisphere with Lawrie Simpson of Australia traveling the farthest and logging the most frequent flyer miles!

2017 Best of Croquet Network

As we roll into 2018, here's our brief annual look at the most popular articles and pages on the Croquet Network site for 2017. It's always interesting to see what rose to the top over the past year.
