Hurlingham Croquet Mallets (With brass rings)
Lots of families have an old croquet set knocking about in the attic or back of the garage, but with half-decent sets costing hundreds of pounds, now is the time to replace those mallets held together with duct tape, those balls eaten by woodworm, that replacement peg which is actually an old cricket stump marked with highlighter pen, or even a proper pine box to put the whole set in.
We have spares and accessories to cover every eventuality.
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.
Please note the price is for individual mallets. You can find the full set here.
