6 Reasons You Should Check Out Croquet Roquet

September 27, 2018

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.

2. We have complimentary Sun King beer, Garden Party Hard Soda and HotBox pizza

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!
