The “Johnnies” and the “Mids” vie for the coveted Annapolis Cup during this annual rite of spring.

The “Johnnies” play in different “uniforms” each year – ranging from camouflage khakis, to U.S. Naval Academy imitation Crackerjack, to Vikings’ attire, to bare feet. The “Mids” follow the United States Croquet Association dress code.
