CURRENT CHAMPION

TOM RINDBORG

Check "Photos" for some pics.

From 1996, the championships are played annually.

Previously, they where played twice a year (spring and fall), except for a period in the beginning of the 90's, during which no organized championships where played.

Some championships have been cancelled due to too few players, extreme weather, or no wax, and some have been interrupted when the night became too dark to find the balls.

The Trophy

A Curiosity

The R.Å.S.O.P. members view traditional lawn croquet as a thread of silk, as compared to the barbed wire nest of eXtreme croquet.

In 1986 Mats ThilÚn took part of the Swedish Lawn Croquet Championship of that year. He has never won a R.Å.S.O.P. championship, but he actually won the official SLC title. Undoubtedly, this was as a demonstration of the R.Å.S.O.P. power.

For PR reasons, the club offered to arrange the official Swedish Lawn Croquet Championship. The offer was accepted, and so we did arrange this competition in Linköping in 1987 ("Slaget om Stångåbro").
