General Croquet Sites
The Oxford Croquet site is the best croquet site by far, run by Dr Ian Plummer. Hugely informative, well-organised and generally indispensable.
Norwood Croquet Club
Norwood Croquet Club, in the eastern part of Adelaide, has happily revived its website at www.norwoodcroquet.asn.au.
Hyde Park Croquet Club
There is a website for the Hyde Park Croquet club, in the southern part of Adelaide, here.
The Croquet Association shop at Cheltenham, UK is excellent.

In the USA, Ed Roberts' Attack Croquet mallets are highly thought of, and are now supplied with Fenwick Elliott shafts.
We can supply John Riches' booklets; see booklet page.Computer Games
There are a couple of good computer simulations.
The best I have seen is the one produced by Ian Lines. The program features rotatable views and zoom capabilities, sound, varying levels of shooting ability, different lawn sizes, singles and doubles, and even variable hoop sizes. The program costs $50. For more information contact Ian Lines at ian.Lines@atkingsglobal.com, 8 Oakwood Lane, Bowdon, Altrincham, Cheshire, United Kingdom WA14 3DL Tel:0161 929 5443.
There is also a good fun program, which is free, called KiwiCroquet: this can be downloaded from www.homepages.paradise.net.nz/rrobinso.
A version of the American game can be played on line at http://www.buus.us/Peri_Damon/Video%20Game%20AMOK/Croquet/Croquet%201.7.swf
