"The first rule of croquet is to have a perfectly manicured lawn. It also happens to be the second rule. Boasting a sophisticated reputation, the game of croquet is really one of strategy, tactics and…ruthless fortitude. You 'll get your ""whack the ball out of bounds"" moment with the mallet and suddenly all of those summer-in-the-Hamptons vibes will disappear. From stakes to wickets, the 6-Player Croquet Set includes everything you need to get the game started. Playing with your pinkies up is optional. Gender: unisex."
