A great game for friends and family of all ages is croquet, the perfect fun for all ages and great for garden gatherings, bbq’s etc. The Sandford croquet set from Big Game Hunters is a high quality wooden set that I knew all the family would enjoy.
The set comprises of:
- 2 adult size mallets
- 2 smaller junior mallets
- 2 full size balls
- 2 junior balls
- 6 metal hoops
- 1 wooden winning post
- Carry bag to carry and store the set.
The bag to store the set in is really useful, keeps all the parts together and makes it easy to carry around, although I have to warn you that it is very heavy. This is because all the parts are solid wood, so really are the best quality.
I like the way the set is designed for a family with a combination of adult and child mallets and the same with the ball sizes which are again solid wood. Everything is beautifully made so you really are paying for what you get with this set retailing at £99.99.
It was then time to try it out which the children were itching to do so we invited the grandparents over for an afternoon of tea, cake and croquet. What I love about this game is that it reaches all ages, young or old, it brings families together. My parents in their late sixties joined in along with my children aged 8 and 5.
The children thoroughly enjoyed playing croquet even if we did play to our own rules, but we kept it simple and fun and it was a big hit with everyone. This is definitely a family game and really brings about a bit of competitiveness that everyone can enjoy.
The quality of the set comes through when you are playing and it feels good to play with, it’s all very sturdy, looks nice and everything is a good size.
We’ve really enjoyed playing this game as a family through three generations and know it’ll be something that will come out on any dry days for a bit of fun and entertainment.
