George Wood Original Croquet Mallet

SKU: GWOR Categories: ,


30 customer reviews


    This mallet is made by world renowned mallet maker George Wood and has proved a firm favourite as club mallets and with club players of all standards.

The mallet heads are made from beautiful Sheesham wood  which is extremely hard, dense and stable. It carries independent ‘FSC Pure’certification that it’s sourced from 100% legal and well managed forests. The timber is kiln dried timber and has an inlaid sighting line and ‘Tufnol’ end plates fitted. These end plates are virtually unbreakable and provide a crisp and true surface for striking the ball.

The standard mallet head; length 9 1/4″ (23.5cm), wide 2 3/8″(6.0cm), height 2 1/2″ (6.5cm).

Longer Head lengths 10″ and 11″ can be ordered but will incur an incremental £10.00 charge.

Due to limited space we usually keep in stock the 9 1/4″ head length, and a few 10″ heads. The larger sizes are available as a special order.


Made of selected clear English White Ash, the lower half of the handle is turned on a copy lathe and the top half is hand shaped to a positive and traditional octagonal pattern. The standard size is 25 mm x 31 mm. Handles have an 8 coloured band on the shaft showing the order of play.

Measurement of the mallet is from the top of the shaft to the ground.

    Just great for a relative beginner. Made the change from good golfer to croquet. Hadn’t played golf for years due to back problems so took up croquet which I love. Time to buy a good mallet. Very pleased. Thank you.

    I am not quite sure that I have purchased the correct mallet, several members have commented on how long it is, I am quite tall and have played with it 3 times already and my performance has improved.

    Lovely feel and perfect size. Our season hasn’t started yet so I won’t know if I have an improved game until then but I suspect I will.

    I paid rather more than you quote here!

    Very easy site to follow. Good selection of mallets. Able to select weight,size,different sizes of mallet head and height. Very quick delivery. My only complaint is that the delivery driver left it leaning against our electric gate and it could have been damaged if gate had been opened. Gate is operated by a mobile phone system and anybody operating the gate as they entered may not have seen it on the other side.
