KNOXVILLE – Knoxville Opera Guild will host the 11th annual Knoxville Croquet Tournament on Sunday, May 17, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. on the grounds of the UT RecSports Field Complex across from Dead End BBQ on Sutherland Ave.

Participation is open to the public, and no experience is necessary. Participants can register to play solo or with a partner, or may choose to simply attend and mingle in support of the arts organization.

“The Croquet Tournament allows us to gather and enjoy fellowship as a community while enjoying some friendly competition for a worthy cause,” said Knoxville Opera Marketing and Public Relations Director Michael Torano. “It’s a great opportunity to strengthen our support base and end the 2014-2015 Season with a bang.”

Along with playing croquet on the green, attendees will enjoy a gourmet brunch and high tea, raffle prizes, a bocce game, vintage automobiles, and vintage costume contest.

The Knoxville Arts Challenge competition will be presented by Mayor Tim Burchett. Registration will begin at 10:30 a.m. followed by the gourmet brunch and tournament. The event is proudly sponsored and catered by All Occasion Catering.
