Bayou City Outdoors Croquet & Cocktails (Sorta)
Crazy For Croquet
Memorial Park Croquet Court
1500 Memorial Loop Houston, TX 77007
2:00 – 5:00PM
Start your spring with a swing! (of the mallet) Iron your whites, grab your favorite mallet (or use one of ours) and get out on the 'sward. Work on your cannon, drive, peel, rush, split, jump and pegging out shots (um, we’re not entirely sure what all that means…) What we do know is we’re calling all BCO-ers and guests – to join us for a good old fashioned afternoon game of croquet on the croquet pitch (‘sward) at Memorial Park.
Equipment, light bites, sodas and water will be provided so you can enjoy the proverbial “Queen of Games” with members and guests. Feel free to BYOB for yourself or to share.
Fun Fact: People originally condemned croquet because it was one of the first sports to allow men and women to compete together on an equal playing field. The sport was banned in Boston in 1890 for fear that young couples might disappear into the bushes to look for a missing croquet ball. Don’t worry, the courts at Memorial park have a well-groomed fence, so you should be safe.
$5 for members; $10 non-members.
BYOB and BCO provides light bites, equipment, sodas and water..

When & Where
Bayou City Outdoors
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Typically most BCO events are for adults. But, we do love kids. If you believe your child is capable of keeping up with the group, no problem. AND if this is a bike ride they MUST wear a helmet. Questions? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
We add parking details to the Event descriptions.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
If the temperature is above 80 or it very clearly says "No Dogs" then please don't bring your dog. We LOVE dogs and only make this rule if we feel there could be a safety concern (for the dogs of course:).
BIKE: If it is a bike ride: Bring a helmet or borrow one from us. Helmets are the single most important piece of gear you can have on a bike ride. Anyway, any time you are wearing a helmet you must be having fun!
Bring water. Frequently our events are in the woods or out of the way. Water is important.
HIKE: If it is a hiking event wear comfortable shoes. Athletic shoes, hiking boots, running shoes, just be sure your feet will be happy.
SOCIAL: If it is a social event? Wear whatever YOU feel comfortable in. We are an eclectic mix of people with all types of interests and jobs. People will come straight from work in a suit or jeans, straight from running or working out, and some of us even come cleaned up straight from the shower! (and everything in between)
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Can I update my registration information?
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Printed ticket or download the EventBright app and bring it on your phone.
What is the refund policy?
Refunds up until 48 hours before. Or, better yet, get some goodwill by sharing your ticket with a friend. They will love you even more after all the fun they had at the BCO event!
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Yes - see love & friendship above!
