Learn How to Play Association Croquet

Association Croquet Icon

The best way to learn how to play Association Croquet is to play Golf Croquet with someone. This will teach you how to swing a mallet, hit a ball, run a hoop, and the order in which the hoops must be run in Six-Wicket Croquet. Then have someone teach you how to play Association Croquet. This will teach you two-ball shots, and running breaks.

If you want to learn another type of croquet, use the library for American Croquet, Nine-Wicket Croquet, or Golf Croquet.

The USCA also offers classes that will teach you how to play Association Croquet.

But if you want to do some learning on your own, visit some coaching websites, and read some of these articles.
