I love to play croquet. It’s not only because it makes you feel “hoity toity,” and civilized, but because it’s very social. You have that fun of wacking your friends balls in the weeds, engage in trash talk, and navigate the perilous terrain in golf like fashion. But face it, sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate.
