Croquet


Comment on Croquet

I like to play croquet with my employees....it helps me run the country better in Tony's absence.

This certainly is an icon of England and cannot be termed as "quaint". It is a competive and compelling game. Our family can't wait for those summer days when we set out the lawn for games of croquet. I've introduced many friends and colleagues of varying nationalities who've become hooked in the space of an evening. Anyone whose has never played buy yourself a croquet set and you'll soon see. Enjoy.

Comment on Croquet

I have never played Croquet in my life. I've never seen a game of Croquet being played. I don't know of anyone who has played it or seen it. I am not a monk or a hermit, and therefore cannot understand how it can be classed as an "icon" when it's profile is restricted to heresay and old episodes of The Avengers.

When you think of croquet, you think of English gentlemen. It's the perfect English pastime.
