Croquet is older than Wimbledon

Our new member, Howard, sent me the following today. An interesting Radio Clip about the history of croquet.

I was listening to Radio 2 (Chris Evans) and to my surprise heard about 3-4 mins of talk about Croquet
Just search for ‘radio 2 croquet’ or go to BBC player radio
Is this a first ?
Who listens to Radio 2?

I guess a lot of people do, if Chris Evans’ payments from the BBC (in the news today) are any indication.

This is the link to the BBC site that I found, but I’m not sure how long it will last,
