Croquet in the Lou 2022
Join us for a wonderful afternoon in Tower Grove Park on July 10, 2022, for a FUNdraiser supporting the Field House Museum. This unique event provides instrumental support in continuing the mission of the Field House Museum, helping us to create dynamic programs and exhibitions, along with maintaining the integrity of the National Landmark Field family home.
The game of croquet was first referenced in print in London in 1856 but is believed to have originated in the Middle Ages. Rules include hitting a wooden ball with a mallet through a hoop or “wicket.” Eugene Field was undoubtedly familiar with the game (and its reputation for being intensely competitive) as he mentions croquet in The Tribune Primer:
You don’t have to be a pro to sign up for our friendly croquet tournament!
