 The perfect variation of croquet for novicesbecause of its easy to understand rules is also asensation with veteran golf croquet championplayers in international competitions!It's concentration on shooting a single ball toa preferred spot on the court, one turn at a time,gives it that "golf" ambiance.

Scoring a WicketFaults
Balls sometimes come to rest not altogether on theother side of the wicket. BUT if you can see no coloron the "approach" side of the wicket - you havescored it.
Out-of -Bounds
Balls knocked out-of-bounds are returned to sit onthe boundary line at the point of exit.
Play Miscellany 
Passing, waiving a turn, is allowed as are jump shots,cannons (knocking a third ball with the second), andpeels (knocking another ball through a wicket withyours). Balls entering from the back side of wicketsmust clear only the back side plane of the wicket tobe in the accepted position to subsequently scorethe wicket in the proper direction on the next turn. When it is discovered that a player has played out-of-turn, anything that occurred from the point of error to the moment of discovery is null and voidincluding wickets scored. Replace Balls and StartOver.Same thing with playing the Wrong Ball except thatplayer loses their turn in the replay.
