Croquet: a brief history
Croquet is an enduringly popular sport all over the world and was invented by John Jaques II and introduced to the world at the Great Exhibition in 1851, winning him a gold medal. The game is played with Jaques croquet mallets, balls & hoops and is a hugely enjoyable garden game for all the family, playable at all levels, yet encompasses the need for tactics, strategy, and skill in equal measure. Lewis Carroll, a relative of the Jaques family and author of Alice in Wonderland, was an avid Croquet player and an anarchic version of Croquet is featured in this legendary novel.
