Whisky Wisemen’s

Inaugural Croquet Tournament



Our vision

Whisky Wisemen’s vision of our inaugural croquet tournament, is to bring forward an Wimbledon inspired event that highlights British culture. Taken from the origins of Wimbledon, the All England Club began life as a croquet club from 1868 - 1877. Later, Dr Henry Jones first suggested that one of the croquet lawns be set aside for lawn tennis and in 1877, the club changed its name to The All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club.

Pulling ideas from the Royal Box the “veritable Who’s Who of the great and the good”, hundreds of strawberries and cream, as well as the usage of greenery and plants of the famous ivy on Centre Court in Boston Ivy, we have transformed West Point Grey Lawn Bowling and Croquet Club into a space that royalty would join!

We choose to do things differently. We always have. Not to merely “stand out”. But rather, to push things forward. For 60 years, we’ve challenged convention to revolutionize the idea of what an automobile could be.

Our passion for pushing the envelope and thinking beyond the needs of modern mobility continues today, and has produced some truly visionary creations.

We Are MINI.
