Nailsea Croquet Club pair Marcus Evans and Ryan Cabble have been selected to represent England in a world championship event.

TWO Nailsea croquet players have been selected to 
represent England in a world championship in 
July.

Marcus Evans and Ryan Cabble are two of an 11-strong selection from the best golf croquet players in England who will be playing in the Bestinvest Golf Croquet World 
Championship which will take place at the Hurlingham Club in London from July 18-24.

Golf Croquet, which is a newer form of croquet, is 
enjoying a surge of interest around the world, partly because it has simpler rules than Association Croquet 
and is more interactive (each turn is just a single 
stroke).

The first player to run through a hoop is awarded a 
point and there are no extra turns. A game is usually won by the first player to gain seven points. In the World 
Championship most matches will be played on a best of three games basis.
