The original form, and a far more complex game than golf croquet, with as many peculiar sounding terms, to the uninitiated, as cricket. There are three hoops at each end of a rectangular court, with a centre peg. The game involves four balls teamed in pairs with each ball being struck with a mallet through every hoop, and striking the central peg to win. Black and blue balls are played by one team, red and yellow by the other. The game is for two or four players. The handicapping system is perhaps less of a leveller than the 27 stroke differential (24 to -3) might suggest.
