The Club plays both official versions of Croquet, namely Golf Croquet and Association Croquet. Golf croquet is quick to learn.
Association Croquet is more complex.
On our club afternoons Golf Croquet doubles is played, an ideal way to teach new players. The afternoons include tea and
an opportunity to get to know our members.
On Fridays and Sundays from 10.30 a.m. Association croquet is played, with coaching if required. From mid afternoon the lawns
are available for any kind of play.
On Mondays from 3 p.m. into the evening singles Golf croquet is played, along with coaching.
Tea, coffee, drinks and light snacks are always available in the clubhouse.
On normal club days there is no particular dress code,
the only constraint is that flat-soled shoes must be worn to protect our lawns.
Predominatly white clothing is worn for matches and tournaments.
The Club caters for players of all abilities!
Those just looking for a pleasant social scene will enjoy the two club afternoons a week and the pleasant ambience that the Club has to offer at all
Those wanting to play more seriously will be encouraged to take part in our in-club competitions, which are tailored for both Association and Golf players

tournaments which we host are listed in the diary in the clubhouse and on the website.)
