The Mall, or Maglio Gardens were created by Grand Master Lascaris (ruled 1637-57) as a pallamaglio or Pall-Mall (a croquet court). Lascaris was worried that the young knights when not on board a galley would be spending their not inconsiderable energies in the wrong manner and introduced them to the game of croquet. There was an inscription on the garden wall, reading in English translation:
perish slot, here perish cupid's darts
Knights, on you this place I now bestow.
Here play your games and harden your warriors' hearts
Let not wine, women or dice bring you low.
