Dear Golf Croquet friends,

Deutscher Krocket Bund (German Krocket Association) is happy to invite you to its top Golf Croquet event in 2012:

The 4th. German Open Golf Croquet Tournament will be held at the Rissen Tennis Hockey Krocket Sportsclub  in Hamburg, Germany from Saturday 1. September to Sunday 2. September 2012. The Club will be open to competitors for practice on Thursday and Friday before the tournament starts.
Holder is David Hopkins of Helderberg Village/RSA.

Entries will be limited to 16. We try to get in as many as possible players from abroad; a colourful field of players from many nations is part of the tradition of
German Open tournaments. The field will be completed with the top German players. A minimum of 8 Places for non German players will be allocated following the first apply first play basis with immediate confirmation to enable in time travel preparations.

The tournament will consist of a prelimnary stage of 2 blocks of 8 players to produce a (double) knock-out stage of 8. Matches will be single 13 point games in the prelimnary stage and best-of-three 13 point games at the knock-out stage.  Those who do not qualify for the knock-out stage will be able to enter a Plate event. All losers will be able to continue playing so that a full final ranking of 16 positions will be produced. The format is subject to adjustments.

Two brand new croquet lawns will be used double banked.   

A special stress will be put on the social side of the event: dinner, lunches, courtside drinks and maybe a boat trip are included in the programme.
