Roque at the 1904 Summer Olympics

Dates 3 – 8 August 1904
Medal Events 1

Croquet was contested at the 1900 International Exposition in Paris and is usually considered an Olympic sport that year. In 1904, croquet’s American variant, roque, was held at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition and is also considered an Olympic sport. Roque is a variant of the sport croquet, and the name is derived by dropping the initial “c” and the trailing “t” from the name of the sport, croquet. The event was held at Francis Field, the main Olympic Stadium on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis. Croquet, or roque, has never again been contested at the Olympics, and there are no plans for this in future.
