Our Club is situated at 18 Richmond Hill Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 3RP and has three superb full-size lawns.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Our members can now play at any time during the week subject to our mandatory booking system. The clubhouse and other facilities remain closed for the time being.
We are keen to introduce new players to our wonderful sport, so anyone interested in coming along to give it a try should contact us to make arrangements for a free introductory session:
All enquiries to Esther Jones, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org ,
telephone 0121 455 6426 or 07962137657.
Please also feel free to request any information about our Club, membership, corporate parties, or Croquet generally.
During “normal times” our playing season runs from April to October and we play both official versions of croquet, namely Association Croquet and Golf Croquet. Club sessions are Fridays and Sundays from 10:30am for Association, and Wednesdays and Saturdays from 2pm for Golf, but full members are able to play and practice at any time. Tea, coffee, drinks and light snacks are always available in the clubhouse.
See membership information for further details about joining.
For further information about Croquet generally see The Croquet Association website: www.croquet.org.uk.
Croquet is played on equal terms by either gender.
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!
