Old Englishmen in stuffy white sweaters might be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word croquet. Quite the contrary, croquet has become a popular sport around the world with tons of families joining in on the fun. This almost two century old sport makes for the perfect backyard game with its minimal equipment of mallets, wooden balls, and wickets. Be the first to score 14 points by getting your ball through the wickets and declare yourself the winner!
