CLUB DAYS

Except when there are Covid-19 playing restrictions or when it clashes with the event calendar above, club members can meet each week during the playing season without booking as follows:

Mondays AC Association Croquet from 14:00 (winter: from 11:00)
Tuesdays GC Golf Croquet from 11:00
Wednesdays AC Association Croquet from 14:00 (winter: from 11:00)
Thursdays   Court mowing and maintenance until 14:30, except for designated events
Fridays GC Golf Croquet from 10:00
Saturdays AC Association Croquet from 14:00 (winter: from 11:00)
Sundays GC Golf Croquet from 11:00

Two of the club's four courts are allocated to the regular sessions listed above; the other two courts can be used for either Association or Golf Croquet on any day and at any time (except on occasions when allocated to a club match or tournament), and can be booked in advance by members using the online Court Booking System.

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, and to book a court. Members' contact details can be found in the Members Area of this website after logging in.

In addition, non-members are welcome to visit a club session for free to try croquet 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.

Covid-19 restrictions: while these apply there are NO general club sessions. Instead the number allowed on each court is limited in accordance with the restrictions applicable at the time, and booking a court in advance is mandatory at all times.

COACHING

ACGC There are no formal coaching courses yet planned, but if you are interested in any ad hoc coaching please contact us.

In addition to any more formal courses that might be arranged, 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.
