The sport Croquet started in Southern France in the fourteenth century.
The game is played by two the other side does the players (or sides) each with two balls. The objective is to score 12 hoop-points and a peg-point with each ball before. Through careful play, a player can keep the tactical advantage, hence improving his chances of winning by making life difficult for the opponent. More importantly, he can earn additional strokes, so allowing breaks to be played and scoring many hoop points in a single turn.
A full-length Association Croquet game can take from about one hour to three hours or more.
The origins of the game are not known in detail, but something close to the modern game of croquet appears to have been played first in Ireland in the 19th century. It came from Ireland to Great Britain about 1850, and became very popular in the late 19th century before being eclipsed by the newly-invented game of lawn tennis. The rules have been altered and refined many times over the years.
