Our inaugural “Coaching Tournament” in 2011 was a huge success and we will be repeating the format this year. This will be a high-low doubles tournament, using 14-point alternate stroke handicap doubles.
The format will be determined after all entries are received. The goal is to give all higher-handicap participants several games partnered with different low-handicap players. The alternate-stroke format is a great teaching opportunity, as well as great fun. We’re calling it a “tournament”, but the emphasis will be on coaching, break play, and fun.
As usual, our coaches will include some of the top players and instructors in the country, such as Damon Bidencope, Bob Cherry, Danny Huneycutt, Ron Lloyd, Paul Scott, and Jeff Soo—NC players with National Championship titles and US Croquet Team experience.
Non-USCA-members may enter, but USCA members have priority if the event is over-subscribed. Otherwise, entry is first-come, first-served, to 24 players in the higher-handicap group (approximately USCA 6 and above), to ensure a good ratio of low to high handicaps.
