David McCoy, President, Croquet Enterprises and Acting General Manager, National Croquet Center
After retiring from a 34-year career as an executive with Exxon International in New York City, David became a permanent Florida resident and a “snowbird.” In 2002 he was talked into playing croquet at the Palm Beach Polo Club. He has been “hooked” ever since, now playing in Championship flight. Elected to the Croquet Foundation of America in 2009, he volunteered and was elected to lead the NCC management team. He plans to develop The National Croquet Center into a more vibrant and successful mega-center for croquet, with an active and growing local and national membership.

She brings her great customer service and hard working business ethics to the NCC. We are proud to have her join our team.

She is very involved in the community and because of her lifetime committment to check and balances, brings a high standard work ethic to the NCC.
The Croquet Grille, Banquet and Special Events
Sandy James Fine Foods has taken over responsibilities for the Croquet Grill. It is fair to say that we have never before had such a high quality of food service at the Center.
