croquet in East Egg

My friends and I are organizing weekly croquet matches in a nearby park. What would be a good title for them?

We're thinking of something using outdated turn-of-the-century vernacular, preferably reminiscent of The Great Gatsby (since we're dressing in that vein), but we're at a bit of a loss. Give me your suggestions.

The Flamingo & Hedgehog Club? Bet you could make a nice embroidered crest out of that concept, too.

in art school i made a short film entitled "Urban Croquet" that featured myself and a friend playing croquet with makeshift mallets and frozen grapefruits we found outside.

not very roaring twenties though.

What day of the week? If it's Monday, for instance, Monday Mallets comes to mind...

But I think bcwinters wins.

Every year at our family get together, there are several games of croquet. We usually call it Killer Croquet. (Take no prisoners!)

Thanks for the ideas everyone, but we settled on The Flamingo and Hedgehog Club.
