"I thought I would update you on my mallet progress. After much club mallet envy I scored the first hoop and then from the first hoop I lined up and got the ball all the way down and through hoop number 2... so as you can imagine - pretty pleased with that endeavour! Reckon you'll be getting more customers from the spectators."

"... we didn't know anything about the mallet at all [an inherited mallet]. It gave my sister great pleasure. She has decided it is too nice to give away, especially now she knows the workmanship you put into it. It will now be a treasured memory."

JB - Aug 2023


"Thanks for the mallet. It turned up a few days ago in good order. It looks great and plays really well. I have added a little extra weight to suit my particular style of play. It is very helpful to be able to make this small adjustment."

"Just thought it would be courteous to drop you a note to say that I am very pleased with the new mallet. I stopped off at Wrest Park on the way home and practiced with it for an hour and a half. The shift in weighr from shalf to head does make it swing smoothly and it was a pleasure to use.">

Roderick Dunlop Brown, London - Jan 2022

DC - Nov 2021


"Many thanks for supplying the mallet which arrived this morning. It is beautiful and I am absolutely delighted with it. It has a lovely feel to it. I think your mallets look much nicer than those available at the Croquet Association, and mine has a nice, slightly understated appearance."

PL - Nov 2021


"This morning my lovely new mallet arrived, thank you very much, it feels comfy and looks good!"

C - Oct 2021


"I have now played two separate sessions with the aluminium mallet and so thought it a good time to give you some feedback.

Overall, I think it is a truly excellent mallet. To say it has improved my accuracy would be an understatement. Accuracy from both near and far, short and long, is superb. It also seems very well suited to the CF9 shaft allowing for a greater feeling of balance, increased power and overall control. For example, stop shots result in near perfect control time and time again over a considerable distance."

PM - Sep 2021


"Just to let you know my beautiful mallet arrived safely and secure. It feels great in the hands and I can't wait for next game on Saturday. Thank you also for giving me a highly visible central line. That is going to be a great help to me. I'm also very grateful for your fast turn around." and

"Just been on the croquet lawn for three wonderful hours. Just want to say my beautiful mallet was much admired by the rest of our group. It was beautiful to handle and helped me so much. Thank you so much for getting it to me so quickly. I really appriciate it. I wish you well and hope your business goes from strength to strength. I consider myself very lucky to have found you."

LS - Sep 2021

I played with it in the afternoon and although I lost my games I felt my shots improved and of course while waiting my tern I could admire your craftsmanship. My aim in playing is to enjoy myself and I can now do that in abundance."

"I purchased a mallet for myself from another company about a year ago but haven't been completely satisfied with the balance and workmanship. So I turned to the internet a few months ago to find a mallet for my wife's birthday present. I came across your website. You had an amazing choice of wood selections for the head as well as a large variety of shafts.

You responded almost immediately after I contacted you. You provided advice on the head selection pointing out certain woods wouldn't be good in my Florida climate. I decided to take the plunge (over $300 US when including shipping - not the cheapest mallet, but by far from the most expensive) with no information but what was on your website and an exchange of a few emails.

I received the mallet about two weeks after ordering it. That's a custom mallet from England to the US IN TWO WEEKS. I was amazed. Not only that, the mallet looked beautiful. Mt wife fell in love with it. I tried it and I did too. It played as well as it looked. So I ordered one for myself.

This time the mallet (a bit more expensive due to the head wood selection and the carbon fibre shaft) arrived in 8 DAYS!!! And it is even more beautiful than the first. I could not be more thrilled.

Please use this feedback on your website so others hear about the craftsmanship and service you provide. I thank you and wish you and your company continued success.

P.S. I will certainly be referring croquet friends and acquaintances to you, but the mallets you sent me are by far your best advertising."
