Croquet set - Hurlingham
Our top of the range championship set with four international quality square mallets. All fitted out in a stunning polished, solid mahogany croquet set box. One of the finest croquet sets on the market today, from the inventors of the game, Jaques of London.
Jaques made a set similar to this in the days of the British Raj, and supplied it to Indian potentates through the East India Company. To go with their Rolls Royce Silver Ghosts, we even made sets for the Maharajahs. A famous one even had solid ivory mallets.
This fine Hurlingham croquet set in a box continues this famous tradition, a reputation gained over many decades. The set contains two each of our Colonial and Laser Tuftex LV mallets, the Laser Tuftex models featuring a new protective face material developed by the company over the last few years, the Colonial models harking back to those earlier times and still made to the same famous design. Matched Croquet balls in a smart canvas carrier and Association cast iron hoops and hoop drill are the finest available, together with Championship corner flags and yard line pegs, a hoop smasher mallet and a gold lined, colour banded winning post to show order of play. Enamelled metal hoop clips and ball markers complete the set, with Jaques' basic rules and instructions for croquet and golf croquet, the Official Croquet Association Rules, and Anton Gill’s lovely illustrated book on the history of croquet which also has a wealth of other information and tactical advice. The set is presented in a beautiful polished solid mahogany cabinet which will, with care, last a lifetime.
