Now supplied with the new upgraded ROUNDED mallet heads
. These FULL-SIZE mallets have solid ash handles. The grip end has a hand-crafted
octagonal cross-sectioned shaft, which is usually only found on more expensive
mallets. Secondly, while other mallets in this price range usually have straight,
round shafts (read broom handles), our replacement mallets have the all-important
profile that creates a "sweet point", above the hitting head, which
is necessary for the satisfactory flexing of the shaft during the shot (notice
how the shaft gets thinner after the grip and then thicker just before the hitting
head). The hitting head is made from hardwood which, again, is usually only found
on more expensive mallets. The advantage of hardwood is that it makes the mallet
more durable and adds a bit more weight to the mallet, which helps to improve
control when making a shot. Having said that, these replacement mallets are certainly
not too heavy for children. Finally, our Townsend mallets come with a leather
grip on the shaft, for added comfort.

Croquet mallets are arguably one of the most important parts of a croquet set (along with the balls). Get it right, and you will be able to really feel the shot, enabling you to gain more control and accuracy. Get it wrong, on the other hand, and you will feel like your playing with little more than a broom handle. The trouble is, good replacement croquet mallets are traditionally very expensive. Until now, that is. Our replacement mallet shown here have features you will only find on more expensive versions.
All in all, our Townsend replacement mallets represent great value for money,
and are ideal if you wish to replace a broken mallet, or add mallets to an existing
set, but do not want to pay the sort of prices that you have traditionally been
required to pay.
Garden Games is a UK manufacturer who were one of the first companies to manufacture games specifically for adult and family play in the garden, starting with the Hi-tower Giant Jenga Style games and branching out to produce Croquet Sets, Action Climbing Frames and Garden Games that are suitable for all the family. In 2003,Garden Games took over the croquet business of Townsend Croquet
a brand known in croquet circles for its high-quality croquet sets at a more affordable
price. They have continued to develop the Townsend range over the years, maintaining
Townsend's reputation for value croquet sets. In our opinion, John Cardy and his
team at Garden Games have done an exceedingly good job. Not only have prices remained
about the same, but the quality of these sets has been raised even further. We
are very pleased, therefore, to recommend the full range of Garden Games croquet
equipment to anyone considering buying a croquet set.
