Indoor Croquet Set

For many, the name of Jaques is synonymous with croquet. Though the game had existed in some form or another for many years, it was John Jaques II introduction of the game at the Great Exhibition in 1851 that brought the game the attention it deserved. The games popularity proved infectious, and it became hugely popular throughout the British Empire in a matter of years - indeed, it was said that "Nothing but tobacco smoke has ever spread so rapidly". For his display at the Exhibition, John Jaques II won a Gold medal and cemented Jaques of London's place in sporting history. JJ II was widely regarded as the foremost authority on the game, and in 1864 published 'Croquet; the Laws and Regulations of the Game', by which (with some revisions) the game is still played today. Nowadays there are croquet clubs all over the world, with many millions of casual players. A sport that can be played by man or woman, young and old, it is with some pride that Jaques of London can say they are still producing the highest quality croquet sets 160 years on from John Jaques II's first presentation.
