Saturday Fixtures, Croquet & its Mallets

When I was a kid, my aunt Gaynor used to pay R1 to the winner when we played a game of Croquet. Not just a lovely memory but it was a blast and such a cool game. That is why this can go down as one of the ‘special guys’, but then again what do I know!

Regardless of any explanation, description or crit –  here is this thing of beauty and mythical conversation that would rest comfortably in any balanced space, even a Croquet Hall of Fame…../

The earliest known reference to croquet in Scotland is the booklet The Game of Croquet, its Laws and Regulations which was published in the mid-1860s for the proprietor of Eglinton Castle, the Earl of Eglinton. On the page facing the title page is a picture of Eglinton Castle with a game of “croquet” in full swing.
