Cincinnati Rules Croquet
|Out of Bounds Rule|
|When a ball leaves the field of
play, the player has two options: 1) Play the ball where it lies and attempt to hit it
back into play. 2) Bring the ball exactly 1 mallets head length in from the point where it
left play. This counts as a stroke and the players turn ends.
If the ball is obstructed by an out of bounds marker but still in play (i.e. laying against a fence or rock), the player may move it exactly one mallets head out in a perpendicular direction. This does NOT count as a stroke and the player may hit the ball without penalty. This is similar to "mini-golf".
