Croquet Set Hire and Rental

Description

Croquet is an English classic, and ideal for a multitude of events from Wedding Receptions to Corporate Days, Private Parties and Company BBQ’s.

While away your afternoon with a game on the lawn with our high-quality Croquet Set, complete with 6 adult mallets, 2 intermediate mallets, hoops and 8 balls.

Rules as defined by the Croquet Association of England:

There are two main variants of the game played in the UK: Golf Croquet and Association Croquet (International Rules).

In the more commonly played Golf Croquet (or ‘the sequence game’) the objective of each player is to get his ball(s) through each hoop first. When the first hoop is scored all players move on to the second hoop, and so on. Each turn comprises only one stroke. The merit of Golf Croquet is simplicity.

In Association Croquet, a large number of different strokes are used to achieve various aims. Once one ball is struck (‘roqueted’) it allows two further strokes – the croquet stroke, where the player’s ball is placed next to the ball roqueted and both are struck, and a continuation stroke, in which another ball may be roqueted or a hoop run. In this way breaks are established and it is not uncommon for a good player to take a ball through every hoop in one turn. In Association Croquet both of a player’s balls have to go through every hoop (that is twelve – each is run in both directions) and hit the peg to win.

Your guys were great yesterday. Smart, professional and good with the kids. The inflatables were in great condition and the whole set up was really professional. We will definitely book again next year. Thank you.

We would like to ask you to pass on our Thanks to Joe, for making our Fun Day a big success, we have a lot of positive feedback from the families that attended, and were impressed with the variety of activities that were available for everyone to take part in.

Mandy and Hayley, Leisure Centre Funday, Brighton

Just a short note to thank you (and Joe) for your efforts on Sunday. Joe was an absolute star. The presentation of the equipment was immaculate including the set up. The children (and a few adults!) loved the activities and we will without doubt be using your services again. A truly professional job, executed perfectly.
