Our annual Croquet Roquet is a week away, but it’s not too late to register! Need a little more convincing? We have six reasons why you should check out Croquet Roquet on Oct. 4.
1. We have a two-round croquet tournament
As the name of the event implies, there will in fact be croquet. The tournament is for spectators and players alike. Don’t know how to play? Don’t sweat it. Partake in lessons at the beginning of the event, or stick close to our pros who can help you out during the tournament.
Do we really need to say any more?
3. It’s an excuse to dress up
So, there’s no rule that you have to dress up. But why not? Don your best white shoes and a Polo or dress, and you’ll have the chance to win a prize for best dressed!
4. It’s a different kind of date idea
Among all of the fall date ideas, this might be the most unique. Croquet stands out from the apple orchards and pumpkin carving rendezvous. Show off your compatibility by participating as a team in the two-round tournament. If leisure is more your speed, take your date on a stroll down the Presidential Site’s south lawn, beer in hand—errr, we mean, hand in hand.
5. It’s super affordable
It also might be one of the cheaper fall date ideas. For just $10, a team of two people can play two rounds of croquet and receive complimentary drinks and food. If you are more interested in watching, $5 will get one person in and includes food and drinks as well.
6. You can win prizes and snag some pretty great deals
The team with most points in the tournament will win registration to Wicket World of Croquet 2019. If you simply secure your team’s spot WWoC, we will apply your Croquet Roquet entrance fee to that ticket!
Get your tickets now, and don’t miss out on this year’s Croquet Roquet event. We hope to see you on Thursday, Oct.4!
In light of new public health announcements made by the CDC—as well as by the Mayor of Indianapolis—we are closing the museum for all public events and tours through at least May 1. Until we re-open, please explore our website, which contains an extraordinary array of history & civics e-learning opportunities, including primary resources, original photographs, and 3D scans you can even print! Our staff remain available to serve you (remotely) and we welcome your continued support.
Thank you for being an important part of the Presidential Site and sharing a legacy in action!
