Croquet was featured only once — during the 1900 Olympics in Paris — as an official sport. Medals were awarded for both men’s individual one-ball and two-ball competitions, as well as a doubles contest. All six medals for individual competitors were won by France, as was the gold in doubles. The competition was also the first Olympic event in which women participated.
