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, which supplied all 10 competitors, naturally won all the medals. This was the only Olympiad where croquet was part of the official programme.
