A Wonder Wicket Light is a rocket scientist-engineered device that attaches
to a croquet wicket and lights the way to croquet in the night. In use,
a Wonder Wicket Light illuminates the wicket with a red light that provides
a focused spot for shooting directly under the wicket, and a more diffuse
light to the immediate surrounding area. In addition, a Wonder Wicket
Light provides a bar of light across the wicket to indicate wicket orientation.
These devices were designed for low ambient lighting situations. For
instance a backyard party with decorative lighting such as yard torches,
strings of colored party lights, decorative shrubbery lighting, etc. This
frequently provides "almost" enough illumination for Croquet to be
enjoyed. The problem is usually the inability to see the wickets clearly,
AND to determine if a ball has passed through a Wicket. This is where the
WWL's shine, and you would benefit greatly from them! We have discovered
night Croquet (we call it Gloquet) to be an exciting, enjoyable and
interesting variation on the game. The lights also look attractive in the
yard and provide great party ambiance!
How does it work?
Each Wonder Wicket Light consists of a light transmissible bar, an impact
resistant red LED, a battery pack, and straps to securely fasten the unit
to the wicket. When turned on, the LED glows from within the light transmissible
bar, to indicate wicket orientation and provide the circles of concentric
