The wide 5" opening provides plenty of room to get balls through, even on the roughest of lawns. Their overall height measures 10". These are heavier guage steel than those found in many basic croquet sets.

The Championship hoop represents the best in croquet hoop engineering. The more rigid the hoop is, the more challenging it is to get the ball through. To achieve this, we've increased the stanchion diameter to 3/4" and extended it 11" underground. Rigidity is further enhanced with 4 fins welded securely to each stanchion. The 90 degree orientation of the fins keeps them from acting as a turf plug cutter. Consistency of the 3-3/4" opening remains exact from the ground to the crown (within tolerance of 1/64"). Knowing that everyone's clips are designed for 5/8" crowns, we have kept it at that size without sacrificing rigidity.

Not all lawns are create equally. Nor are all lawns exclusively used for croquet For that reason, the Foxy wicket was designed (& credited to the past USCA president, Foxy Carter). It is ideal for multi-use lawns including bowling greens and tennis courts. They are also easier to insert in tough, dry conditions like hard clay sub-soil conditions. For multi-use courts, these wickets leave a near invisible hole when removed.
The upper section is identical to our tournament wicket with a regulation 5/8" stanchion and cross-bar. The opening is 3-3/4" with a 12' above ground height. Below grade are 3/8" diameter rods. Each set of 6 includes one hoop with a red crown and one with a blue crown unless ordered otherwise.
THIS SET INCLUDES:
Getting hoops in the ground, especially set accurately is not an easy task - unless you clamp the hoop's stanchions (legs) to a fixed opening. This hoop clamp starts its life as a Vise-Grip clamp. We then modify the jaws to hold the stanchions and add an adjustable center that allows you to decide how wide the hoop should be set. It is made strong so as to take the brutal punishment expected when pounding hoops into unfriendly ground.
Now included with every hoop clamp is a convenient hoop gauge to accurately ensure your hoops are set to the regulation size. It will measure 3-11/16" and 3-3/4" openings quick and easy.
Getting wickets into the ground can be challenging - especially with larger wickets or dense soil (or clay). This dead blow mallet will make the task much easier while it's non-marring surface will not chip the finish on your wickets.
This 4 pound mallet works well for average soil conditions (when putting in Tournament hoops) or when Foxy wickets are used. If you are faced with hard dry soil or clay, we recommend the heavier 5-1/2 pound size hoop mallet.
Getting wickets into the ground can be challenging - especially with larger wickets or dense soil. When it comes to big hoops and/or tough ground conditions, you need to send in the 'big guns'. This hoop mallet is made in America, weighs in at 5-1/2 pounds, making the job much easier. The non-marring surface will not chip the finish on your hoops.
If you don't need this much hoop mallet, take a look at our 4 pound mallet. It works well for average soil conditions or when Foxy wickets are used.
The Indoor Hoop is designed for indoor and artificial turf croquet courts. The upper section is identical to the Tournament wicket. Below the floor (or turf) is a 3/8" rod that fits snugly into a polyethylene sleeve. The hole in the sleeve is offset to allow for fine adjustments on the hoop opening. This insert protects the concrete from the continuous stress exerted by the wicket when the ball hits it. This same insert provides a solid anchor when used in a compacted substrate below an artificial turf surface. These hoops can be purchased in sets of 6 or 9 or as singles.
Heaviest of all of our recreational hoops, the Kensington croquet hoops weigh in at 2 pounds of steel each. They are made from 7/16" round steel which is then heated and bent into the square 'U' shape you see here. With a solid 5" in the ground, they still provide regulation height. Their opening of 4" offers a challenging opening but not too close that would frustrate on most backyard surfaces. The heavy steel allows shots to be ricocheted through from an angle.
Upgrading to the Kensington hoops in your backyard will increase the caliber of play and boost your enjoyment of the game.
For those who prefer magnetic clips over spring-loaded, these are for you. Available in 1st color solid and striped. They stand 3" tall and will hold securely to the top or side of any steel hoop. These will not work if your hoops are stainless steel.
Oakley Woods recreational sets feature these Sport hoops as the standard. They were designed for the serious backyard player on a budget. They provide a moderate challenge to recreational players with their 4-1/2" opening. The Sport wicket is made from 5/16" diameter steel. At 18" tall, they can be placed 6" in the ground for a solid footing while maintaining the regulation 12" height. Like all of our hoops, they are powdercoated for maximum longevity.They are available in sets of 9 for the traditional North American court configuration, sets of 6 for the international court setup or singles.
