Abbreviations Used in Croquet Scoring

The method of reporting croquet scores varies from county to country. A point is awarded for each hoop point and peg point. In England a score is conventionally given as the points difference with any additional attributes, e.g. +13TPO. Elsewhere this would be reported as 13:26 TPO.
