John Hobbs Croquet Mallets


I make croquet mallets to your own requirements. On this site you can learn how they are made, what's good about them and how to decide what sort you would want. You can then order one - and pay for it, by cheque, BACS or use PayPal. I also tell you a bit about myself and how I came to be in this business. If you live locally you can visit me and have a coaching session, as well as buy a mallet!


I don’t make croquet sets and if you want one I suggest you contact the Croquet Association Shop, on    01242 233555  or email  or log on to their web site: Also contact the shop if you want a bag for your mallet, but I have some in stock for visitors.

I'm afraid I have given  up making mallets, but I will carry out any repairs.
