Arizona Croquet Club

ARIZONA CLOSED

No official name of this event was ever adopted but "Arizona Closed" seems to have stuck the best

The CLOSED Format:

The event starts on Wednesday with 12 select players, selectively chosen by "the closed committee" -  the committee consisted of Steve Johnston, Rory Kelley and Ren Kraft.  The event starts with an evening of cocktails and dinner at Rory and Cynthia's home. Play starts the next day with three days of a double round robin of mixed doubles.  You will play with each person as a partner against variety of opposing teams.  The Best 8 records advance to a singles playoff event starting Friday afternoon and concluding Saturday afternoon.

Kraft court:

The Kraft court is at the home of the Arizona Croquet Club located at 6022 N. 64th Place, Paradise Valley (McDonald & Invergordon).
Use McDonald drive or Invergordon.  Some come and stay all week.  Here is a map to the Kraft court map.

Players:

Welcome! - you have been selected by the committee (Rory Kelley, Ren Kraft and Steve Johnston).

The trophy is a Kokepelli dancer playing croquet. (They look really cool!) [except that Trophies were dispensed with a few years back ...]
