Summary More Info. Accessories Delivery  
Full-size croquet set in a strong canvas bag. This set is supplied with upgraded mallets with solid ash handles, usually found only on more expensive sets. This is probably the best value full-sized boxed set available and is ideal for family use. Includes 4 hardwood mallets with leather-bound octagonal ash handles, regulation size and weight 16oz composite balls, steel hoops, hoop mallet, corner flags and pegs, plastic clips, hardwood winning post and rules. Packed in a solid pine box with latches and rope handles. An excellent set for all the family.

We offer a number of accessories to go with this set. The secondary colours are worth having if more than 4 people will be playing at the same time, or when playing with 2 balls. We also offer extra mallets. The Junior & Intermediate mallets are great for encouraging the children to take up this great game. The Hurlingham mallets are a great way to upgrade the set.

For many years there were two types of croquet set - good quality sets at a very high price, and poor quality sets at a lower price. Thankfully, this situation is changing as some really quite impressive sets at very good prices are becoming increasingly available, broadening the appeal of croquet. Probably the most famous of these is the Townsend Croquet Set shown on this page. What this set does so well, is to put the quality where you need it most - basically it's firstly and foremost mainly about mallets and balls! Get these two right, and you'll have a great time playing croquet. The mallets supplied with the Townsend set are remarkably good for the price - they have solid ash octagonal-section handles, profiled so that they flex in just the way you would want them to, and hardwood hitting heads. The balls are very good - made from modern composite materials, they are long-lasting and regulation size and weight (try and find that elsewhere at this price!). The hoops are not the most critical aspect of a croquet set as they are easy to get right - as long as the gauge of steel is adequate - these are. All in all, our Townsend Set really is a very good buy.

Hurlingham Croquet Mallet
These FULL-SIZE mallets have solid ash handles. The grip end has a hand-crafted octagonal cross-sectioned shaft. These mallets have a perfect profile that creates a "sweet point", just above the hitting head, which is necessary for the satisfactory flexing of the shaft during the shot (notice how the shaft gets thinner after the grip and then thicker just before the hitting head). The hitting head is made from hardwood, which will last for many years of intense play, protected by brass rings. The advantage of hardwood is that it makes the mallet more durable and adds a bit more weight to the mallet, which helps to improve control when making a shot.   enlarge
Intermediate Croquet Mallet
Most family croquet sets are supplied with full-sized croquet mallets, which are perfect for adults and teenagers. However, often there will be younger children who will also want to play along too, and they will find it much easier to play with a croquet mallet more suited to their size. Our intermediate mallets are perfect for children up to early teens. Lightweight, yet strong, they are perfect for encouraging children to take up the family croquet tradition from a young age.  enlarge
Junior Croquet Mallets & Balls - Four Colour Set with Canvas Bag
Many good family croquet sets are supplied with full-sized croquet mallets and balls, which are perfect for adults and teenagers. However, often there will be younger children who will also want to play along too, and they will find it much easier to play with a croquet mallet and ball more suited to their size. Our junior mallets are perfect for children up to 7-8 years old. Lightweight, yet strong these colourful mallet & ball sets are perfect for encouraging children to take up the family croquet tradition from a young age.  enlarge
