Croquet In Egypt 

The sport croquet traveled from Ireland to England around 1851.

How To Play

Croquet can be played by two or four players. The object of the game is to hit your ball(s) through the course of six hoops in the right sequence in each direction and finish by hitting them against the centre peg. The side which completes the course first with both balls wins.

  • Pulls or pushes his ball so that it changes course once initial contact has been made.
  • Hits the ball twice or more in one shot.
  • Touches the ball with any body part or clothing. 
  • Touches any other ball, other than the striker's ball, with the mallet.
  • Plays a croquet stroke which fails to move or shake the croqueted ball.

  • Plays a stroke that is likely to cause and does cause substantial damage to the court by the mallet.

Croquet was first played 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.
