The Garden Games 16oz balls are full-weight and full-size (9.2cm). These modern, long
lasting composite balls are durable and provide excellent play. These are the
balls that Garden Games supply with their top-end croquet sets such as the Townsend
Along with mallets, croquet balls are the most important part of a croquet set. Get it right, and you will be able to really feel the shot, and appreciate fully the right "knock" as one ball hits another. The important thing to look for in a croquet ball is that it is of regulation size and weight (a regulation croquet ball must be 3 5/8" diameter, and weigh 16 ounces), as a ball that is too light or too small will not behave in the way it should do. Finding regulation size & weight balls is actually not as easy as you might think, and if you do find them, they are usually quite highly priced - until now that is. Our replacement balls are made from a tough composite material and will provide years of good service. We offer so-called primary colours (Red, Blue, Black & yellow), as well as the secondary colours (Pink, Brown, White & Green). We sell individual balls, or as sets of primary or secondary colours.

Croquet balls are usually purchased for two reasons - either as replacements for
lost or broken balls, or as additions to an existing set. Adding croquet balls
to an existing set is a very good idea, as it enables more players to play together.
More experienced croquet players will know that it is generally more fun to play
with two balls each, rather than just one - if each side has two balls, the possbilities
for playing a strategic game become more numerous. So, four players might have
two balls each, requiring six balls in total. A total of 8 balls allows up to
eight players to for 4 teams of 2 people, each team of two sharing two balls (far
more fun than having 8 people using 8 separate colours!)
PRIMARY COLOURS are Red Blue Black & Yellow. These are the colours
generally used when using up to 4 balls. SECONDARY COLOURS are Pink,
Brown, White and Green, and these are generally used when using more than 4 balls
All in all, our replacement regulation croquet balls represent great value for
money, and are ideal if you wish to replace a broken Ball, or add balls 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.
