A standard set of croquet hoops comprises 4 white hoops, 1 red hoop, and 1 blue hoop. Generally speaking, there are two types of croquet hoop: tournament hoops, and garden hoops. The difference between these two types is not size, but construction, and ease of use. Tournament hoops are made to be less flexible (and hence less forgiving), and are therefore often made from cast iron, and the part that is driven into the ground is often in the form of a carrot, which helps to provide greater stability and improved relaibility of the hoop width. The problem with tournament hoops, especially for garden use, is that they are much more expensive, and they are difficult to set up properly, especially if they are not being used on a perfect croquet lawn. In most gardens, you will find, unless a proper hoop drill is used, the gap often becomes too narrow by the time the hoop is driven in, and the game becomes too difficult. Wire hoops, however, of the type shown here are far more practical for garden and family use, and much cheaper!
The regulations for hoops say that they should have uprights which are 5/8" diameter,
a gap which is between 4" and 3 3/4" wide, and the crown of the hoop should be
12" above the ground. Our garden hoops shown here are regulation height and width.
While the most important parts of a croquet set are the mallets and the balls,
the hoops need to be chosen with some care. These hoops are very easy to set up
for family and garden use and represent great value for money.|
If you compare these to other brands of croquet hoops, you
will probably see no difference at all, other than the fact that these
are half the price. All in all, our replacement croquet hoops represent
great value for money, and are ideal if you wish to replace a lost hoop, or improve
the look of your croquet lawn by replacing old and rusty or bent hoops in your
