Ripley Stainless Ltd. sponsors and is the main organizer of the BC open Crokinole Championship Tournament that happens in Oliver BC. Every year we get excited about who’s coming? and from what part of Canada, we have people come from Ontario, New Zealand, Alberta, Vancouver, Washington….and of course tons of locals.

Crokinole is a Canadian game invented in the 1800’s its a unique game the combines the geometric visualization of pool and the prophetic strategy of chess and the dexterity of quilting grandmother.

For some it is a game for social enjoyment for others it’s a sport of competitive skills.
