COVID-19 LATEST (updated 1st April): We are now open for members to play at any time and our lawns are in excellent condition. We will be observing social distancing and our clubhouse is still closed.
Our club afternoons are Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 2 p.m. Visitors wanting to give croquet a try will be more than welcome but as we are still restricted as to numbers, please contact us ahead of arrival:

Please also feel free to request any other information about our Club, membership, corporate parties, or Croquet generally.
Our “normal” playing season runs from April to October when there are Club sessions for both, and full members are able to play and practice at any time. Tea, coffee, drinks and light snacks are available in the clubhouse.
We play both official versions of croquet, namely Association Croquet and Golf Croquet.
See membership information for further details about joining.
For further information about Croquet generally see The Croquet Association website: www.croquet.org.uk.
ABOUT CROQUET: there are two versions:
Association Croquet, the original and more complex game, and Golf Croquet, an easier to learn alternative which has lately gained in popularity.
At Edgbaston we play both, either as singles or doubles. Members can choose which form of the game suits them best, and many play both. Croquet’s effective handicap system recognises smart thinking as much as physical skill, so everyone has a good chance of winning!
