Apart from when it clashes with the event calendar above, Club members meet each week during the playing season as follows. Club members who turn up at the lawns on one of these occasions can usually expect to get a game. At other times it is generally advisable to plan a specific game with another club member in advance. A list of members' contact details is posted inside the club hut.
|Mondays||Association Croquet from 14:00 (winter: from 11:00)|
|Tuesdays||Golf Croquet from 11:00|
|Wednesdays||Association Croquet from 14:00 (winter: from 11:00)|
Association Croquet from 16:00 (summer only)
|Fridays||Golf Croquet from 09:45|
|Saturdays||Association Croquet from 14:00 (winter: from 11:00)|
|Sundays||Golf Croquet from 12:00|
In addition, non-members are welcome to visit for free in up to three club sessions to try it out before being asked to join. Just turn up and speak to a member. Equipment will be provided by the club. All we ask is that you wear flat-soled shoes.
There are no formal Association Croquet coaching courses planned this year, but if you are interested in any ad hoc coaching please contact us.
An Introduction to Golf Croquet course for 2017 will be held on Fridays 7, 14 and 21 April from 10:00 - 12:00. If you are interested in this course please contact us. There is a fee of £15 which is deductible from this year's membership fee if you join the club.
In addition to any more formal courses, free informal coaching for both Association and Golf Croquet is generally offered by the more experienced players on club days on an ad hoc basis to both existing club members and prospective new members.
