WHAT IS CROQUET DAY?
Croquet Day is a backyard BBQ style Croquet Tournament with fun for all ages! The Tournament is played on 10-12 concurrent fields. Team members, families and other spectators who are not currently playing in a match will enjoy food and family-friendly activities, such as carnival games, face painting, live music, etc.
WHO CAN PLAY? WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
ANYONE can play! There are two tiers of teams - Competitive Teams who will compete in the Croquet Tournament and play at least 2 games, and Recreational Teams who can play 2 games but are not part of the Tournament. Teams can have up to 4 players. If your team includes children or is not ready to enter the competitive Tournament, consider entering as a Recreational team and enjoy a more leisurely play (a discount is available for any Recreational Team with at least one child 12 or under). Top scoring Competitive Teams from the Croquet Tournament will move into playoffs where prizes will be awarded for the first, second, and third place Competitive Teams. All teams can compete for special prizes for Best Team Name and Best Team Uniform. If you don’t want to play, you can still come and enjoy the day outdoors and all the other lawn activities!
The Croquet Day event attracts individual and corporate teams from across our service area of Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax County/Falls Church, Prince William County and Loudoun County. In total, including teams, spectators and volunteers, we anticipate between 200-250 people.
WHEN IS IT?
Saturday, June 3rd from 12:00 – 3:30 pm. At 12:00, Croquet Bob, a professional tournament director, will offer a sneak peek on how to play (& win!).
Each Competitive Team will be assigned two play times during the Tournament. Play times start at 12:30 and games are 20 minutes each with a 10-minute break between games. The last play time is at 2:50 pm and is immediately followed by a “SHOWDOWN” to determine the TOURNAMENT WINNERS!
WHERE IS IT?
The event will be held at Hensely Park, 4200 Eisenhower Avenue, in Alexandria, VA.
