Description

Croquet was contested at the 1900 Olympics in Paris, with three events. Two of the competitors were women, among the first women to compete in the Modern Olympic Games. In 1904, roque, an American variant of croquet, was on the Olympic Program as well. The sport has not been held at the Olympics since 1904. The name “roque” is derived by dropping the first and last letters from the name of its parent game of croquet. Croquet is not currently recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), nor is it even a member of the Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF).
