Croquet (French: croquet, (UK) or (US)) is a sport that involves hitting wooden or plastic balls with a mallet through hoops (often called 'wickets' in the United States) embedded in a grass playing court. Its international governing body is the World Croquet Federation. Variations There are several variations of croquet currently played, differing in the scoring systems, order of shots, and layout (particularly in social games where play must be adapted to smaller-than-standard playing courts). Two forms of the game, association croquet and golf croquet, have rules that are agreed upon internationally and are played in many countries around the world. The United States has its own set of rules for domestic games. Gateball, a sport that originated in Japan under the influence of croquet, is played mainly in East and Southeast Asia and the Americas, and can also be regarded as a croquet variant. As well as club-level games, there are regular world championships and international matches between croquet-playing countries. The sport has particularly strong followings in the UK, US, New Zealand and Australia, every four years, these countries play the MacRobertson Shield tournament. Many other countries also play. The current world rankings show Australia in top place for association croquet, followed by England in second place, New Zealand in third place, with the United States in fourth position, the same four countries appear in the top six of the golf croquet league table, below Egypt in top position, and with South Africa at number five.
