Croquet – the thought sport. A game requiring skill and strategy.
Suitable for all – male and female, young and old, low cost involved.
Croquet is played on a court which measures 35 yards by 28 yards. The lawns used are normally level and flat but not to the same standard as a bowling green. Six hoops are laid out on the court and each player uses a mallet to strike a ball with the aim of running each hoop in a specified order and direction.
Each game is played with either two players (singles) or four players (doubles) and four coloured balls are in play at all times.
Competitive or social – there is room for both. Participation in sport can be for a variety of reasons, including – exercise, mental stimulation, companionship, competition. Croquet provides an opportunity to travel for tournaments and meet new friends.
