You must have heard of the century-old astonishing woodworking and handcrafting skills of the Amish community. This classic all-wooden Amish-crafted croquet set is no different. It will give you that traditional feel and touch to remind you of the old times of croquet.
The set includes 8 wooden mallets, 8 balls, 9 wickets, and wooden storage that keeps the entire set well-organized.
The mallets are a stunning beauty with a super tough build. They are made with top quality maple hardwood then lathe-turned. The solid brass rings fixed on both ends of the mallets contribute largely to the aesthetics and durability. They prevent the mallets from chipping or breaking thus offering you a lifetime play.
The mallets are hand-painted and color-matched with the corresponding balls in the set. The balls measure 3-5/16 inches diameter and are ultra-durable to withstand continuous harsh whacking from the mallets.
The 9 wickets measure 5/32 inches in diameter and they are made with metal, coated with vinyl to prevent bending and harden them enough to take a few good beatings often.
Also featured are 2 hardwood stakes that are lathe-turned as well with multi-colored sections.
The wooden stand in the package holds the mallets, the balls, and the 9 metal wickets. It is has a brass handle that makes holding and transportation easy for you.
Whether you are a beginner, enthusiast, or professional club player, this set will cater to your needs. And you can enjoy the game with different heights and capabilities thanks to the 6/8 mallet variants and the 28-inch and 32-inch handle length options.
With a 1-year warranty, this is one of the best vintage croquet sets that money can buy. It has a premium price but is totally worth the buy.
