Wicket World of Croquet

Saturday, June 06, 2020 10:00 am- 4:30 pm EST

Join us for one of the most fashionably unique events in Indy!

Don your game whites and hit the court for a wicketly competitive day of historic elegance and modern indulgence.

This grand Indianapolis tradition supports a wonderful cause – proceeds from the Wicket World of Croquet will help the Presidential Site share high-impact educational programs and tours with more than 17,000 children this year!

Don’t miss your chance to experience (or learn) croquet as it was meant to be played!

Register as a team of two for a leisure or competitive tournament. All teams will receive entrance into the tournament, use of fine equipment, drinks from Sun King Brewery, lunch, and more!

Awards for looking wicket good! Everyone knows croquet requires all-white dress attire, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be creative. Prizes will be awarded for best dressed participants.

Don’t play but want to stay? The Porch Party is for you! Come enjoy an unforgettable day on the grounds of the Presidential Site. Your ticket guarantees lunch and snacks, Sun King beer, a silent auction, and all sorts of wicketly fun activities.

Advance registration is required. This is a rain or shine event.

Please direct questions to the Special Events and Marketing Manager: (317) 631-1888 or events@bhpsite.org.
