Croquet players come in
all variations; from occasional, fun-seekers to serious enthusiasts to
'Extreme' players. Each player puts varying demands on their equipment.
For this reason, we provide the largest range of quality-made equipment
anywhere. Light duty backyard (garden) sets can be the most challenging
purchase. Good mallets and balls must endure constant beating while
hoops should be strong enough to stand straight and resist being
deformed when hit by the ball.
Mallets and balls must be
matched to each other for weight and durability. A large ball will
prematurely wear out (or break) a light duty mallet. The same is true
of a large mallet hitting a mis-matched ball. Recreational balls
typically weigh between 10 - 13 ounces while their matching mallets
range from 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 pounds.
At The Croquet Store & Oakley Woods Croquet, we insist on bringing you croquet sets to fit every croquet player's budget.
