History credits French peasants with the origin of croquet. In 1865, the game officially came to America with the establishment of the Newport Croquet Club in Rhode Island. Its popularity soon spread around the country. In 1987, the Bald Head Island Croquet Club organized. With eighty members, the club is one of the largest in the United States.
