Membership Information

Our traditional season runs from April to end October. 

Our three full-size lawns are tournament quality. We have a small clubhouse, a permanent gazebo and a BBQ area for outside entertaining. 

We play the two codes of croquet

Golf croquet (GC), the quicker to learn version, and

Association croquet (AC), the more complex version.

The 2024 first-year membership fee is £135, which allows new players access on club afternoons and informal coaching in GC. The club afternoons are Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 2 pm. Golf croquet doubles is played and visitors are also invited to come along for a free trial session (flat soled shoes are a must). All equipment is provided.

Tea and coffee are available in our clubhouse, and members can bring their own refreshments.

Association croquet is played on Friday and Sunday mornings.  Please contact us first if you are interested in playing this form of the game. Coaching is available to full members only.

The full membership fee is £275. This allows you a key to the clubhouse so that you can come and play/practice at any time. It also includes specialist coaching sessions in both GC and AC.

Other membership fees are: non-primary club (i.e. the player must be a full member of another Croquet England registered club) £100, student £40, junior (under 16) £25.

All members receive regular e-mails updating them on all club news and forthcoming events.

There is no particular dress code, but flat-soled shoes are a must. (White clothing is only worn for matches and tournaments. )

The Club is a member of Croquet England and hosts two tournaments annually.
