A bit about this site

The purpose of CroquetDev is to help people develop their association croquet. It is written from my own experiences over many years of playing croquet. I have attempted to write articles in a detailed but easily understandable way. This site is not intended as a replacement for any other croquet site on the internet - it is simply my own thoughts and opinions. This site is in no way completed but I intend to add additional info over time.

The diagrams on this site are all SVG files, which means they are scalable to any size without degrading the quality, and take up next-to-no space whatsoever compared with images. All the diagrams have been created by me using Figma. The animations are also SVGs, with object animation done by a tool called SVGator. All the photos have been taken by me over the years (except the one with me in it).

If you have any feedback, requests or even wish to host your own article on this site, please let me know.

This isn't a croquet news website, and hence does not get updated daily, or even weekly. But every so often there should be a significant update to the site.

A bit about me

My name is Paddy and I'm an amateur web developer, professional SQL Server DBA and croquet fan.

I've been playing association croquet since 1999. I'm a CA-accredited Level 3 coach, meaning I am authorised to coach on all aspects of croquet, from beginner to very advanced topics. As a player I have had some success, winning the World Championship, NZ Open Championship and British Open Championship, plus the MacRobertson Shield with New Zealand.
