Casual Sports: Croquet

Croquet is a casual lawn game, played both as a leisurely pastime and as a competitive sport, which involves hitting wooden or plastic balls with a mallet through hoops embedded into the grass playing court.

The history of this casual sport of Croquet is that it became highly popular as a social pastime in England during the 1860s; by 1867, John Jaques, of the manufacturer Jaques of London that still supplies a significant share of croquet equipment used today had printed 65,000 copies of his Laws and Regulations of the game. It quickly spread to other Anglophile countries, including Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the United States and Canada. No doubt one of the attractions was that the game could be played by both sexes; this also ensured a certain amount of adverse comment.

This game is to be played on a lovely grass field where you can drink a refreshing casual beverage like blueberry ice tea and have a nice chat with your fellow casual athletes as the sunny rays of the west coast greet you with their warm presence.

If you are not in the most casual environment then you can improve the irritable habitat by installing one of these courses where ever just buy plucking a few hoops in the ground and instantly you are more casual and content.
