The USCA posted a helpful new 21-part video series this week on referee instruction produced by Bob Kroeger and Ted Prentis. I skipped ahead to the segment on marking balls, which is quite useful. I am looking forward to viewing the full series. It's definitely a good approach to helping everyone on the court.
A closer look at the USCA Croquet School program offered at the National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach, Florida.
This practice video from Bob Kroeger shows that the single ball target is much bigger than you think. This is a great idea for expanding your perspective and improving your roquet percentage.
The 2015 Volume 2 issue of the Croquet News mailed this week and should be hitting mailboxes soon. The web edition is also now available to USCA members on the magazine page. This time around we've created a few little extras in the web edition, so have fun checking those out. A few of the highlights include:
One of the quietly growing segments for the sport of croquet on the internet is YouTube. The traffic is still minor compared to the crazy videos that will notch views in the millions, but the overall segment of YouTube channels that Croquet Network tracks has grown from 12 to 18 since the start of 2014. And the total views for that group has gone from 434,000 to 603,000 during the same timeframe.
The artistry and emotions of competitive croquet are captured in a soon-to-be-released book. It combines Bob Chilton’s poignant photography and John Osborn’s eloquent prose to depict the serious side of croquet as never before. Bob has filled the 160-page, cocktail-table, 11” x 14” book with exquisite photography of over 130 tournament players from across the U.S. John Osborn draws from his life-long obsession to capture the competitiveness as well at the humorous side of the sport.

Bob Kroeger posted some highlights from the 2008 Golf Croquet World Champions. Reg Bamford and Ahmed Nasr are featured.
After playing in and covering the USCA Nine-Wicket tournament here in Kansas City, I determined that I wanted to do something to preserve the history of that event. So today, I present the Champions page on the site which also links to the list of WCF World Champions on the croquetrecords.com site and the WCF Golf Croquet Champions on the WCF website.
I will also add a U.S. Rules Champions list, but as of now, I have not yet found that information.
