KC Club Xtreme Championship I

To celebrate National Croquet Day the Kansas City Croquet Club will meet this Saturday at the Willow Creek Court for the first annual KC Club Xtreme Croquet Championship. The Xtreme event can best be described as a combination of miniature golf, standard golf and nine-wicket croquet.

The rules will follow standard MCA Six Ball rules with the following modifications.

  • A wicket can be run from either direction. However, once a ball enters the wicket from one side, it is committed to scoring the wicket from that side.
  • If the striker sends any ball or balls to a position that is unplayable, the player’s turn ends, the ball or balls are placed in the nearest playable location (perpendicular relative to the target wicket) and the player loses their following turn.

The first player to score all of the wickets and hit the peg with the striker ball wins the game. As a note, there is in-turn deadness, but no carryover deadness. A play will start each turn live on the field.

2019 KC Croquet Club Opener

KC Club Layout 20192019 WEEK #01
The schedule opened up a bit and we were able to get out for a prep day this past Saturday. We’ll be working with a new east-west layout and a challenging slope, but we’ve eliminated the lunar landscape of the former northwest corner. We are ready to open for play this Saturday with mowing set for 8:30 a.m. and games expected to start around 9:00 a.m. We’ll continue with 9W Bisque play under MCA advanced tournament rules.
WEEK #02: XTREME CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP
Looking ahead to June 8, the USCA is bringing back “National Croquet Day” and as an official USCA Nine Wicket club, I thought we’d participate by holding our first ever Xtreme Croquet Club Championship. Details to come, but we’ll fit it into the same timeframe as our normal Saturday Game.

2018 Missouri Open Cancelled

Due to a low number of total entries, the Kansas City Croquet Club is announcing the cancellation of the 2018 Missouri Open at Eagles’ Landing. The event would operate at a loss and that negates the primary goal of raising funds for court development in southern Kansas City.
