These FULL-SIZE mallets have solid ash handles. The grip end has a hand-crafted
octagonal cross-sectioned shaft. These mallets have a perfect profile
that creates a "sweet point", just 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 will last for many
years of intense play, protected by brass rings. 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.

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.
