The Ratcliffe Cup 2024

The Ratcliffe Cup is open to all members. One-Ball is a variant of Association Croquet but instead of each player having two balls each has just one. Its simplicity is suitable for beginners of both GC and AC. One-Ball is not dissimilar to GC, in that most turns comprise a single shot, which is used to take position or to aim at another ball. However, the tactical decisions in One-Ball are interesting and most games last less than 30 minutes. It is traditional handicap play with extra shots (bisques) for the higher handicap player. The winner is the player to get his ball through all 12 hoops in sequence and lastly hitting the centre peg. It is the best of three games.
