For anyone who is interested ...
An absolutely brilliant Windows-based croquet game available for download. The game is a shareware version, the original being available from the author, Ian Lines of the UK.
The game is absoultely realistic and plays Association croquet, USCA croquet and golf croquet. It provides every conceivable option for playing a game on a PC and includes zoom capabilities, plan view, 3D views (rotatable), true shooting or realistic (gets worse depending on your handicap), sound, short games, different lawn sizes, handicap or levels, advanced or normal play, time limit or not, singles or doubles, primary or secondary colours, various hoop widths, etc etc.
I absolutely recommend the game for anybody who is involved in coaching, as it provides the basis for teaching the tactics of the game without having to venture out onto a lawn. (A must for those cold British winters!) Download it here, then unzip it to a new folder and you're in business. Print off the Read_me.txt file for details on how to play etc.
