Morning Coffee: US Player Poll Results

Congratulations to Sherif Abdelwahab and Ben Rothman for each receiving nine votes to win the 2015 US Croquet Player of the Year Poll. Croquet Network has had pretty good success with online polls and while we had more votes for this year's poll versus the 2014 poll, it was clear that the poll carried the wrong title. Our result would better be characterized as the "Most Popular Player Poll."

By Ben Rothman

Another beautiful weekend in Wilmington, Delaware, greeted the twenty-four participants in this year's Delaware Invitational. Tom and Joan Hughes were kind enough to open up their home for the welcoming reception again this year and provide shelter from the heavy heat that weighed down the practice day. Barry Gibson, the tournament co-host, welcomed a few select players to compete at the DuPont Country Club to alleviate the double banking concerns of tournament Director, Ben Rothman.

Croquet Network Magazine (June Issue Available)

Click to launch the full edition in a new window

The June issue of Croquet Network was released over the weekend and features coverage of the College National Championship played in April at the Merion Cricket Club. In addition, the June issue includes a tribute to Jerry Stark repinted from the Croquet World website along with a profile of U.S. golf croquet champion Mohammad Kamal. As a bonus, Eric Sawyer contributed a report on a recent GC tournament held in Pasadena to honor Kamal.

Regrettably there is an error on the cover. I apologize as Pavlos Papadopoulos was spelled wrong. Surprisingly, changing out a digital magazine is a little more challenging than you might think -- mainly because of URLs and view counts. It will be corrected as soon as possible.
