 The Seventh Annual Palm Beach County 

 Summer Golf Croquet League

The seventh annual Palm Beach County Summer Golf Croquet League will begin on Tuesday, July 7th & Wednesday July 8th and run for six weeks.  The competitive matches will be split into two leagues, one on Tuesday evenings and one on Wednesday evenings, running for five weeks.  Then on Tuesday evening, August 11th, there will be a final playoff between the top teams from each night's Amateur and Championship blocks to determine overall winners.

Last year 74 teams competed from across Palm Beach County in this doubles tournament.  They were organized by families, friends or business associates.  Many entrants were croquet beginners. 

 

This year, registration will be cut-off at 96 teams.  All teams are required to have a team name.  Teams can register 2 to 4 players for the six-week event for a single fee of $75.   

 

Medals will be awarded to the first and second place finishers in the Championship block.  Certificates will be awarded for winners and runners up in the Amateur block.  Special recognition certificates will also be awarded after the Finals on August 11th.  The public is welcome to attend all Summer League activities.

 

Golf croquet is the easiest version of croquet to learn and to play.  Complimentary teaching and practice sessions will be offered from 1 to 3 pm. on Saturdays June 13th, June 20th and June 27th at the National Croquet Club for anyone interested in entering a team in the league. 

 

The Croquet Grille & Lounge will be open for drinks and light dinner fare throughout the tournament.  For more information and registration forms please call 561 478-2300 ext 3 and ask for Marie.

                                             D- DAY TOURNAMENT  

JUNE 6, 2015 

On Saturday June 6, 2015, the 71st anniversary of D-Day—when Americans invaded Normandy and paved the way to victory in Europe—there will be a golf croquet tournament at the National Croquet Center sponsored by the Croquet Foundation of America.  The tournament will be between two Boynton Beach Veterans’ organizations, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5335 and American Legion Post 164. 

Full Moon Games 

The FULL moon games will resume in late fall. We play two quick games. One strategy players picked up on was not to shine your light in the area where your opponent was playing their ball.  And for shine the light towards the wicket that your partner was going for! 

What Fun everyone had and the comments were "we should do this more often even without a Full Moon.
