Croquet is a serious and competitive game, which requires well-made precise equipment. This set is made for the connoisseur who appreciates fine equipment and is serious about the game.
The “Croquet Association Set” has been developed in collaboration with, and is endorsed by, the Croquet Association in London. It contains competition mallets made to the exact specifications of World Champion player Joe Hogan. Unless otherwise requested all mallets are supplied with an overall weight of 3.00 lbs and measuring 36 inches. The mallets have black synthetic cushion grips fitted. Up to 6 letters may be stamped in gold on one side of the mallet heads at no extra charge. The set comes packaged in a solid pine chest.
The Pro-16 club level balls weigh the regulation 1 pound each and 3 5/8″ in diameter.
The welded 1/2″ tubular steel hoops are okay for home garden croquet and are a fraction wider, but for the serious player wanting the same equipment as used at clubs, the Championship approved hoops do take the game to a whole new level. Once suitable holes have been made in the court, the “carrots” keep the hoops firmly in place and they remain solid when jump shots etc are played.
Every set carries a colour booklet with the official Croquet Association rules, US 6 wicket, US 9 Wicket and Golf Croquet Rules with some tips and tactics. All components are guaranteed against breakage in the course of reasonable use and care. For American rules, add three extra hoops/wickets and a centre peg to cart.
