American Croquet Association

US OPEN

Overview:

The US Open croquet tournament is an annual event hosted by the American Croquet Association (ACA).  The ACA was founded by Stan Patmor to provide representation for American players in the Croquet Association in England.  This tournament is currently being played at Mission Hills Croquet Club in Rancho Mirage, California and is held annually during the first full week of December.  Tournament rules follow the Laws of Association Croquet as played throughout the British Commonwealth.  The US Open is both competitive and social.   In most years, there are between 2 and 3 flights of play.  The Championship Open flight is available to players of all handicaps but limited to the top 24 entrants in the field.

Registration:

   Contact Tournament manager Stan Patmor 602 955-1547 or Rory Kelley 480-990-1126 for registration details.
