The 1900 Olympic croquet tournament

At the 1900 Summer Olympics, three croquet events were contested. Seven men and three women participated.

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