worth having if more than 4 people will be playing at the same time, or when playing
with 2 balls. We also offer extra Hurlingham mallets for the occasions when 4 mallets are not enough.

Mallet weights normally supplied are: 36 x 3.00lb unless other wise requested.
Only selected clear American white ash is used for the handles. The lower halves
of the handles are turned on a copy lathe and the top half is shaped to a positive
octagonal shape, which measures 25 mm x 30 mm. The mallet heads are made from
sustainably managed Malaysian Quila which is chosen for its high density, stability
and attractive rich colour. The timber is semi processed and air dried before
having an inlaid sighting line and ‘Tufnol’ end plates fitted. Tufnol is widely
recognized as being the most satisfactory material for use on the striking area
of a croquet mallet. It’s a 6mm thick brown resin-impregnated cloth material,
which is bonded with hi-tech epoxy onto the ends. The end plates are virtually
unbreakable and provide a crisp and true surface for striking the ball.
