Association Croquet (AC) is the traditional form of the popular garden game.  It is best described as a “race” in which the players attempt to be the first to complete the course of hoops and the peg with both balls of their side.  Progress is made by striking a ball with a mallet and propelling the balls through hoops in a specified order.  AC is based on the concept of a “break” – as in snooker, billiards and pool – in which the right may be earned to play a succession of extra strokes.  It is possible to play a break of up to 91 strokes in which the striker’s ball will have been made to pass through twelve hoops and then strike the centre peg.
