Beach Croquet

The best way to keep your family friends happy at the beach

Welcome! Beach croquet is a way of involving the whole family, friends and friendly strangers in beach fun. And the best thing is that it is really a 'level playing field' where anyone can win;  a 12 year old can play as well as a 90 year old! 

Like lawn croquet, beach croquet offers great exercise, and yet favors strategy and skill over strength, so watch out men! You don't have to run around the beach, stepping on other people's towels to have fun; it is really a game for everyone!

Although you can play beach croquet with standard lawn croquet kits, they often work best on lawns or even carpets. To play at the beach, you need more robust mallets and balls that roll better on sand. 

On this site,  you can order plans to build your own set using easily-available components including PVC pipe and softballs. Play in sand, on the lawn, at home or at the park, wherever the mood strikes you!

What Are the Rules for Beach Croquet?

On this site, we've included a complete set of rules for beach croquet, so you can print them out before your next beach trip. 

When it comes to rules, we can help with our online Q & A that helps answer questions you have about incidents that come up while you play. Drop us a line (Email: Bobweir@netscape.com) about a situation you're wondering about and we'll try to answer your message within a day or so.
Even though rules are rules, remember: the bottom line is to have fun!

Beach Croquet too "high-brow" for you? Don't have a Beach?

Then maybe this would be better for you.

One of our readers wrote:"My favorite beach here in CA is Point Dume, which has a couple of areas of flattish sand ideal for games."
