If you ask the players in this year’s USCA GC8s tournament, you might find that many will say it was one of the more grueling Golf Croquet events that is held annually.  40 players from around the country descended upon the National Croquet Center and battled not only their opponents, but the elements too.  It was unseasonably hot, it was very windy in the afternoons, there were tornado warnings and a two-hour rain delay, along with double-banking and lengthy matches, but despite all that, everyone played on.


This tournament has a unique format from other events as each match consists of 2-of-3 untimed games against each player within a group of eight players in the flight designated by dgrades.  Final ranking places are determined by matches won, then net games won, then net hoops, and many of the results came down to a difference of only one net game. 


Special “Thank Yous” go out to all of the referees and Johnny Mitchell who stepped up to share the duties, along with Ursula from the USCA, and the fine team at NCC who kept us well fed and the lawns ready to go.
