It’s a nostalgic outdoor game, suitable for all ages and a great reason to plan a family and friends’ get together.
Dress the Part
White or light-colored clothing
Pops of bright game colors
Set the Tone Croquet parties lie somewhere between a backyard barbecue and a less-fancy afternoon tea.
A sunny afternoon
A freshly-mowed lawn
Play to Win
● International croquet player Chris Williams suggests using a smooth, pendulum-like swing to see better results
● Starting last increases your chances of striking another opponent’s ball
● Try not to end your turn by leaving your ball near your opponents
● To serve as a reminder, the peg is almost always painted in the playing order
