One thing is better than reality. The ability to play shots in slow motion and observe the way a ball ricochets through a hoop. Clips move from hoop to hoop as they are run. A guide is provided for inexperienced AC croquet players.

The files can be circulated to others and a library of useful coaching points built up. Shot sequences recorded on the Tutor version can be played out on the non tutor version. Sequences can be sent to other players by email.
