Opponents send gaily beribboned hoops whirling towards each other to be caught on the tips of slender wands in this exciting and elegant sport. The Game of Graces was considered both proper and beneficial exercise for young ladies in the early 1800s, and it was proper as well for boys to join in the game in the company of girls or to play it among themselves "as a lark".

The Game of Graces is a wonderful outdoor entertainment for older children and adults. Not recommended for children under 8 years. Made in Vermont.

This game includes four 21.5" long wood sticks and two 10.5" diameter wood hoops plus alternate color ribbons to wrap around the hoops as shown on the item photo.
