Rules to play Croquet
The Wickets and Stakes
The nine wickets and two stakes are arranged in a double diamond pattern as shown in the diagram. If you are playing on a smaller court, the distances shown should be scaled down in proportion to the length and width of the court. The wickets should be firmly planted in the ground, and the width of the wickets should be uniform throughout the court.
