Croquet Balls are made from different types of materials. There are painted wooden balls which range from 6.5oz which are primarily made for children and home, family use, up to 12oz which are suitable for adults to use but again, these are designed for recreational home use.The next step up to the wooden balls is the Composite and Plastic balls. The Composite balls are available in 9oz and 12oz where the Plastic balls are available to purchase in 12oz and 16oz weights.
The Ball Colour
There are both primary coloured croquet balls and secondary colours. The primary colours are yellow, blue, black and red and the secondary sets are made up of green, brown, pink and white. The second colour balls allow you to increase your set to a 6 player set or even for 8 players.
