The doubles competition was scheduled first, though it's unclear whether the French pair which won actually had any competition.
The one-ball singles was played the next week, followed by two-ball singles the week after. France, with 9 of the 10 competitors, won all the medals. Belgium was the only other nation to send a croquet player, though he did not finish the first round of his competition. This was the only Olympiad where croquet was part of the official programme.
Belgium had croquet players compete, but won no medals.
