Our Hurlingham croquet sets are superbly made in the traditional style, with regulation size and weight balls.
The Hurlingham mallets have cylindrical hardwood heads with brass bound ends and an inlaid sighting line. (The brass binding not only looks beautiful but also eliminates splitting around the edges of the mallet head from off centre shots.) They are perfect for home garden play and well balanced, with an average weight of 2lbs 14oz and a length of 36".
Made from a dense and tough hardwood called kikar, they’re turned to a traditional cylindrical shape with an inlaid sighting line. The brass rings are heated before being pressed over the ends and screwed firmly in place. The heads are 9 1/4″ long with a diameter of 3″.
The handles are made from English ash, known for its resilience. The lower half of the handle is turned and the top half is shaped to a positive octagonal shape - the same style as normally used for competition mallets too.
Official croquet rules state that balls should weigh 1 pound each, and unlike the majority of sets on the market, the balls in this set are absolutely compliant!
No quality set should be without one - useful for tenderising steak too!
