Believed to have its origins in 17th-century palle-maille, a game often played in London’s Pall, the modern game took England by storm in the 1860s during the reign of Queen Victoria and then spread overseas. Croquet was a one-off Olympic sport in 1900 and is credited with being the first Olympic event in which women participated.
