This unique event, an amateur croquet tournament, will be held at Rochester Golf and Country Club on Sunday afternoon, following a buffet brunch in the clubhouse.

The tournament welcomes novice and experienced amateur players. All teams will play for one non-cash grand prize. The $150 team entry fee admits two players to the pre-tournament brunch buffet, registers them as an event team, and provides a picnic-style lunch.
