Cheltenham 6 Player Croquet Set
Quality croquet set makes the most of any backyard competition.
The Cheltenham six player croquet set for competitive garden play, named after Cheltenham Croquet Club, one of England’s most famous and revered clubs. The favored set of Diana, Princess of Wales.
The Cheltenham Croquet Set has six competition mallets; three Challenge models with Rockwood heads scored on the striking faces, with hickory gripped handles, and three Oxford models fitted with brass rings, made of English sports ash; all reflecting the fine quality of all Jaques of London croquet equipment.
There are six scored, matched Challenge balls, and a set of the special heavyweight Hampton hoops which closely mimic the weight of Association competition hoops. The hoop smasher mallet helps drive the hoops into position after their sites have been carefully watered. There is a six player colored, gold-lined competition winning post with a fitted top peg which accommodates the six hoop clips which are attached to the hoops during play to record a players progress round the court.
The colorful steel corner flags set off the court beautifully, and the ball markers record a ball's position. Jaques instruction booklet, "The Basic Rules of Croquet", which also has much tactical advice and historical information, completes the set. The set is presented in an authentic green colored natural pine box with steel-plated reinforced corners, lockdown enameled metal closures, and a tanned leather Jaques' logo. This lovely six player Cheltenham croquet set will enhance any lawn.
Wooden box size: 43.5" x 10.75" x 10.5"
