We hold an Open Day in May/June, when our lawns are open to the public for visitors to try the game. Club players are on hand to guide visitors through the basics, including some friendly games.
These open sessions are free of charge and take place on our Ashby Croquet Club lawns at Moira Miners Welfare sports ground, Bath Lane, Moira DE12 6BP. All equipment is provided, but please wear comfortable flat-soled shoes or trainers.
If you have missed our Open Day, then just come along to one of our normal club sessions from April to October for an introduction to croquet. We will make you welcome, and club players will be pleased to introduce you to the game of Golf Croquet. Our main club session times are: Sundays from 2.30 to 5pm; Tuesdays 4pm to 7pm; Wednesdays 11am to 1pm; Thursdays 4pm to 7pm.
If you enjoy the introductory sessions and you would like to take croquet a stage further, we have a special introductory club membership rate for new players, which is just £20 for the rest of the year including ongoing coaching in golf croquet and/or association croquet as required. And for the following year we then offer half-price club membership to new players in their second season with the club.
We also organise taster sessions for outside groups (WI, Round Table, etc.)
