The game is played with either 2, 4, or 6 players. For 2 or 4 player games you need 4 balls; for 6 player games you need 6 balls. There are 2 stakes and 9 “wickets” or hoops. Split players into two teams of either 1, 2 or 3 people depending on the number of players.

Croquet courts generally are large (100′ x 50′) but can be scaled down to 50′ x 25′. The wickets are placed in a double-diamond configuration as shown to the right.

2 and 4 player games use blue, red, black and yellow balls while six player games use those colors as well as orange and green. 2 and 4 person games have color splits of blue and black for Team 1 and red and yellow for Team 2. 6 person games split them into blue, black and green against red, yellow, and orange.


The teams can determine who goes first with a coin toss or any agreed upon way. The side winning the coin toss has the choice of playing first with the blue and black balls or second with red and yellow balls. The order of play for the four ball game is blue, red, black, yellow. When six balls are played, the order of play for the game is blue, red, black, yellow, green, and orange.

The teams then follow the path as shown above in the figure, Attempt to hit the ball through the hoops and hit the stake at either end. You earn points by hitting the ball with the mallet through the wickets in the correct order and direction. The winning team is the first team to score 14 wicket points and 2 stake points.
