Benefits of membership

Members enjoy full access to our facilities (with no additional lawn fees) for the duration of the 6 month playing season (early April to early October), with free coaching at all levels from other members, and a social programme (and possibly limited croquet playing opportunities) outside the main playing season.


Members may:

  • be added to our email circulation list, and receive regular updates and news,
  • receive a Member’s handbook with contact details for other members,
  • book games (using our online lawn booking system) at any time subject to lawn availability, 
  • use the pavilions including toilets, kitchens, catering facilities, refreshments etc, 
  • use club equipment on site,
  • attend scheduled “roll-up” sessions,
  • take part in club competitions,
  • make themselves available for matches against other clubs,
  • enjoy high quality coaching opportunities free of charge at all levels from complete beginner to world class,
  • explore specialisms such as becoming a referee or a coach,
  • undertake a range of volunteering activities with other members,
  • attend social events such as club teas,
  • join the bridge group and/or board games group which operate during the winter months

and generally take as full a role as they choose in all aspects of the life of the club.
