18. CONSEQUENCES OF A ROQUET

  1. WHEN A ROQUET IS ACTUALLY MADE If the striker's ball makes a roquet under Law 16(b):
    1. subject to Law 17(a), it cannot thereafter score a hoop point or peg point for itself in the same stroke;
    2. it remains a ball in play throughout the stroke and may therefore cause other balls to score hoop or peg points; accordingly, it may only be moved, picked up or arrested in its course if the state of the game will not be affected thereby;
    3. it becomes a ball in hand at the end of the stroke unless the striker's turn has ended (see Law 4(d)); and
    4. the striker takes croquet under Laws 19 and 20 unless the turn so ends.
  2. WHEN A ROQUET IS DEEMED TO HAVE BEEN MADE If a roquet is deemed to have been made under Law 16(c), the striker's ball becomes a ball in hand and the striker takes croquet under Laws 19 and 20.
