Wicket World of Croquet

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!

We have made some great adjustments to be able to host a safe and enjoyable event in 2020!

-Masks will be required and we are providing masks from sponsor The Shop Indy.

-While we love a good Porch Party, we felt it was important to limit the size of our group and therefore there will be no Porch Party in 2020; BUT PLEASE PLAN to join us in 2021 for a bigger and better Porch Party!

– We have over 2.5 acres of playing space and also will have sanitizing stations and other socially distancing measures.

-We’re sporting a new layout for the courts to keep players, staff and volunteers safe.

-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.

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