ROQUE

Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





This game may be called scientific croquet. A roque mallet has a
dogwood head 9-1/2 inches long, with heavy nickel ferrules. Roque
balls are made of a special composition that is both resilient and
practically unbreakable.

A skilful roque player is able to make shots similar to billiard
shots. The standard roque court is 60 feet long, 30 feet wide, with
corner pieces 6 feet long. The playing ground is of clay and should be
as smooth as it is possible to make it. A very light top dressing of
sand is used on the clay. The wickets, or "arches," are driven into
blocks of wood to secure firmness and buried into the ground with the
top of the arch 8 inches above the surface.

The roque balls are 3-1/4 inches in diameter and the arches only 3-1/2
wide, which gives an idea of the difficulty of playing this game. To
be an expert requires an accurate eye and a great deal of practice.

There is a National Roque Association, and an annual championship
tournament is held to determine the champion. The home of roque is in
the New England States.
