Croquet

When you buy a standard croquet set from Sears, you get six balls, six mallets, two painted stakes and nine bent steel wickets. All these items come in a convenient carry bag. You may remember this lawn game from your youth or from movies featuring genteel attendees at a typical British garden party. Add it to your repertoire of backyard entertainment options the next time that you have some friends over. You can even enhance the level of difficulty by including some slopes and other landmark features in your setup. When players want to take a break, set up a game of ladder golf.

Make backyard parties fun with Sears croquet items

Your typical six-player croquet set from Sears comes with six balls, six mallets, two painted stakes and nine bent wickets. To simplify transportation and storage, manufacturers like Franklin Sports, Trademark Games and Baden include convenient carrying cases that feature compartments or straps to hold the game pieces. Choose a low-traffic lawn area for game play. If you want to make the game just a bit more difficult for expert players, pick a spot where there are a few gentle slopes that require additional finesse to get the balls through the wickets.

When you simply do not feel comfortable handing the youngest players a couple of wooden mallets, buy a foam croquet set instead. It features foam-covered mallets, wickets and stakes. The balls feature a softer material than a standard set. Foam-covered play sets are excellent choices for introducing toddlers and young elementary-age children to the game for the first time. If you anticipate only playing with a few players, consider buying a four-player set. These croquet sets are just as good as other sets, but you do not have to pay for the extra mallets that you do not anticipate using. Then again, if you usually have more than five guests, it is a good idea to have additional games on hand that will entertain them. For the next beach or park outing, add a couple of volleyball nets to your croquet sets. Manufacturers usually make the nets out of nylon and include poles measuring at least 61 inches in height. It is possible to buy stand-alone nets that do not include any extra supplies. The net calls for an available play area width of at least 20 feet.

Since you would use the same types of nets for badminton, Franklin Sports and Sportcraft offer volleyball and badminton combos that feature the rackets, volleyball and shuttlecocks as well as the net. For fun in the pool, consider a water volleyball and badminton net combo setup. Another great game for a backyard party is bocce ball. Sears features numerous easy-to-carry sets that let you transport your game anywhere you like. If there is a croquet game going on in the backyard, get set up in the front yard or the space between two houses. Water-resistant balls make it possible to play in any type of environment even on grass you or your neighbor recently watered.

For an added element of fun, get out a lighted bocce ball set that you can play with after dark. If your party involves a lot of kids, why not add some great sports activities with the help of physical education supplies? The kids will most likely already know what to do with potato sacks, playground balls and bean bags. Add a few safety cones to mark start and finish lines, and you set up a wonderful ball or obstacle course. A set of four sports bases easily transforms your backyard into a baseball field.

Sears carries a large variety of croquet sets, volleyball nets, bocce ball setups and physical education supplies. It is easy to set up these games for same-day enjoyment. Make your game selection in the morning, and play fun backyard games in the afternoon.
