Frequently Asked Questions

There are many resources on line to answer all questions relating to Croquet. Here are just a few responses to the ones we field frequently. For more information about rules and requirements, READ MORE >>

Can you play croquet on a sloped lawn?

For ideal playability, croquet favors a nice level lawn with the balls getting more movement the shorter the grass is trimmed, much like golf. Feel free to set the course up on a sloping lawn — leaving the grass a bit longer may be necessary to prevent runaway balls in this situation — or on bumpy, mixed terrain.

How long does it take to play croquet?

Playtime varies based on focus, complexity and general interactions. It is safe to assume that play takes about two hours.

What happens when you hit another ball in croquet?

Striking or hitting another ball is referred to as a “Roquet.” A roquet allows the player to two extra strikes. The first strike is a special type of shot called a “Croquet” and the second is referred to as a normal strike.

Who is the highest ruling body for croquet?

The World Croquet Federation (WCF) encourages, promotes and develops the recognised versions of the game of croquet internationally at all levels. National croquet associations around the world are members of the WCF, and the WCF sanctions championship croquet tournaments worldwide. The official rules of Golf Croquet are maintained by the WCF.

Is it necessary to own personal equipment to join the club?

One of the advantages of joining the club is access to all the necessary equipment for not only a game but a complete tournament. The storage unit is filled with up to date equipment, maintained and organized by club members.

Must members wear white clothes while playing?

The basic dress is simply light khaki or white shorts, or pants with a white button-down polo or dress shirt. Beyond that, accessories make the player. A matching hat is preferred. Subtle inclusion of color to match your playing ball is encouraged. Actually, we aren’t too picky about what people wear as long as they wear something.
