History of Croquet

Next

Croquet is mostly played as a pass time in the garden area. This game does not demand any specific quality. Although, it is not an Olympic sport, but due to its wide popularity, the game is professionally played in many European and American countries. This tutorial will teach you the basics of the game. As there are many versions of the game and it is not possible to go through all the versions, we will mainly focus on Garden Croquet.

The origin of Croquet is very doubtful. It is believed that this sport was introduced by Ireland and England in 1830s. Croquet gained popularity and became a pass time for the upper classes in the later part of the 19th century and the early 20th century. It was played by both the genders, male and female, with the same interest. However, after the introduction of lawn tennis, the popularity of croquet started declining.
