Backyard Croquet – 9 Wicket was my Introduction

I started playing croquet seriously not after participating in a National Croquet Day, but shortly after playing some backyard croquet with friends from work during a July 4th party. We had fun and we had some different opinions as to what the rules were during the game; after which, I went to a library and found a book by Jack Osborn, the founder of the United States Croquet Association. There I found out a new modern game, with better equipment, formal rules and official tournament play.

The USCA is an association of clubs and croquet players from around North America who share the sport amongst members within their club and with members of the association when holding and promoting “Open and Invitational Tournaments”.

We play a variety of different games from Egyptian Golf Croquet, British Association Croquet, American 6-wicket, all played on manicured putting green courts, to Nine Wicket, played in backyard or park lawns.
