We will kick the contest off and talk about a sport our Marketing Coordinator Josh Deming will be playing all summer long. He plays this sport in his backyard and has so much fun with his friends that we had to share it with you! Today’s backyard game is croquet!
To play croquet you will need to have a croquet set which contains wooden mallets, 12 hoops, pegs and balls. Set up your playing area and create a course using the hoops and pegs. Have each player select one of the coloured mallets and the ball that goes with it. The first player to get their ball through the 12 hoops in order and hits the peg is the winner.
Once a ball has completed the circuit and hits the peg it is removed from the game. A player starts their turn by striking their ball towards the hoop or another players ball. If the ball goes through the hoop they get another stroke and aim towards the next hoop.
If a player hits another player’s ball, that player gets two extra strokes. The player then usually uses their first stroke to hit their opponent’s ball further away from the hoop and then uses their second stroke to aim towards the hoop. By hitting their opponent’s ball away from the hoop still gives them two additional strokes to be used to get through the next hoop.
