The matches shaded yellow are played at home for the team in the left-hand column.
So to read the table easily, (1) find the club in the left-hand column (in bold),
(2) read across to find its scores against each opponent as the first figure given;
(3) read across to find its Home games in yellow and its Away games in white.

If the number of wins is tied then the winner is determined by the who-beat-whom rule,
then by the number of games won.

  1. Each team shall consist of FOUR players, not necessarily the same players each match.
  2. Once a match has started no team player may be substituted.
  3. No player may play for more than one club in a season.
  4. 13 point games will be played with a 40 min. timed limit. If the game is drawn when time is called play one more hoop to determine game winner. Bisques may not be used for this extra hoop.

  6. If a match is drawn at the end of all games, an extra hoop will be played to determine the overall winner. Captains will decide who plays (singles or doubles pairings). Once selected the players toss to decide who goes first. Start play from corner 1 and play to and through hoop 3.
  7. Each player should have a handicap within the range of 0 to 10. The total aggregate of the team handicap must not be lower than 24. (Note: New Golf Croquet handicaps in the range 0 to 12 were adopted by the CA for all UK players and implemented with effect from March 2008 in order to align UK handicaps with world standards. New handicaps for all UK players were obtained by adding 4 to the old handicaps. This Rule refers to the new handicaps. The handicap card index should start at 100.)
