Learn How to Play Croquet
The easiest way to learn how to play croquet is to play Backyard Croquet with your friends or neighbors. This will teach you Nine-Wicket Croquet. Then, if you want more of a challenge, learn Six-Wicket Croquet.
The best way to learn Six-Wicket Croquet is to play Golf Croquet with someone. This will teach you how to swing a mallet, hit a ball, run a hoop, and the order in which the hoops must be run in Six-Wicket Croquet. Then, if you want even more challenge, have someone teach you how to play International Croquet or American Croquet.
The USCA also offers classes that will teach you how to play croquet.
But if you want to do some learning on your own, here is what to do.
You can buy a book about croquet.
