Taming The Triple is a straightforward, practical approach to getting triple peels done. It feels like a one-to-one coaching session, taking you step-by-step, shot-by-shot, and guiding you with over 130 colour diagrams. It has been tried and tested with players with handicaps from -1 upwards. It works!

The accompanying ePracticePack is an innovation in the world of croquet. It has all the main diagrams covering every sequence of play for your triple peel. Load it to your phone, iPad or tablet, and take it with you to the lawns to make your practising easy and effective.

If you are wanting to get your first triple peel done, or complete triples more consistently, or perhaps you coach the triple peel, then this book is for you.

Here’s Dave Kibble’s review:

 “Roger has devised a method that makes the triple peel accessible to any single-bisquer wanting to take their game to the next level of enjoyment … A very well-written, structured and accessible book…The style has the feel of a personal coaching session … I’m sure I’d have done my first triple peel sooner had I read this book first. Now, with over 500 triples completed, I’ve checked out Roger’s schemes and they do work and are easy to understand and follow. He doesn’t tell you how the elite players do it ,he tells you how you can do it with your current skills. I heartily recommend Taming the Triple to the ambitious and fun-seeking single-figure-handicap player”

  1. Clive G

    Excellent addition to my croquet library. Well thought out sequences and very clear diagrams. I especially liked the “magic peeling” shot. Highly recommended.

  2. Paul P

    Already scanned the book and have begun to read in detail. Book is well set out and easy to read.

  3. Derek B

    Very comprehensive

  4. Richard P

    I’m really thrilled with your book. I have never read a croquet book that is: so readable, so easy to follow, so very well written and in plain English! I really appreciate the detail and thought you have put into it. It must have taken you ages to check and double check! Big congratulations.

  5. Derek K

    Clear and concise help to make Triples the norm rather than the occasional chanced upon opportunity.

  6. Wendy W

    Very fortunately got to know the existing of this book. It astounded me after coming across the book. It is a book with wholehearted exhibitions of generosity, genuineness, vitality and penetrating knowledge. It moves me in every aspect. It answers my questions about why I could not do the triple before and leads my way to conquer the triple. It is a true beauty in our croquet world! Love it so much. Thanks.

  7. John O

    I really like the way that the standard and delayed triples are simplified, which makes them easier to remember. I love the “Magic Peeling Shot”. The author also usefully tells you what not to do (until your handicap is -1). I’m surprised, though, that there is no mention of the straight triple.

  8. Anthony T

    Well thought out but need to take your time studying it.

  9. Paul H

    Easy to follow guidance would highly recommend to aspiring peelers.

  10. Derek W

    Wonderful way of explaining how to “tame the triple” – best book yet with easy to read and understand dialogue and pictures.

    I recently bought this publication as I’m a newbie to croquet. It is very well laid out, has an easy to follow structure, key points and images
    There is also an ePackage which makes it easy to take to the lawn and practice with.
    I also bought More Bang for your Bisques by the same author prior to Taming the Triple.
    It follows the same patterns as in Taming the Triple and is easy to comprehend and use.
    I hope Roger introduces an ePackage for More Bang for your Bisques too.

    Brilliant, breaks it all down into bite size pieces, no matter what your handicap.

    You asked for a review before I received my purchase. The latter should come before the former
    The late arrival of my purchase from Croquet England was entirely due to the Post Office failing to deliver the package in anything approaching a timely manner. Croquet England acted promptly in despatching the purchase and rates 4 stars.
