Hurlingham 4 Player Croquet Set
Top-of-the-range championship set will add a distinctive touch of class to your game.
Our top-of-the-range championship set with four international quality square mallets.
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 Championship 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, color-banded winning post, to show order of play. Enameled 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.
