We first developed this Croquet Court motif in partnership with the Annapolis Cup, an annual match between two unlikely cross-town collegiate rivals: the venerable, left-leaning, Great Books-reading St. John’s College and the United States Naval Academy.
According to legend, the tradition began on a spring day in 1982, when the Commandant of the Naval Academy got chatting with a St. John’s freshman and quipped that the Midshipmen could beat the Johnnies at any sport. The student countered, “What about croquet?” and the Annapolis Cup was born. (To date, the Johnnies have won 30 of the 38 matches.)
Set in the heart of Annapolis, the annual croquet match has become a beloved, community-wide celebration, attracting thousands of spectators in outrageous lawn party attire each spring.
