2019 Rockfish Croquet Tournament
The 2019 Rockfish Croquet Tournament was held at the Chesapeake Bay Croquet Club on May 30 – June 2. This tournament is a training tournament and beginners and players with a high handicap are provided with a coach during round-robin play.
Participants can play 6-wicket or golf croquet in singles or doubles.
A great time was had by all. Of special note: Lyle Browning won “best shot” by making a 15 ft double jumper to score the final hoop and win his golf croquet game over John Priest. Susan Scott won “best hoop shooting” for her long hoop shots in golf croquet. The hoops were set to international standards and were very firm and extremely tight, but that didn’t keep Susan from scoring so many from long distance that competitors soon started calling 10ft hoop shots, “Scott Shots”.
The Rockfish will be held again next spring and is a great tournament for beginning players.
