As a club, we love to welcome a whole range of social groups, clubs and voluntary organisations from the wider community to come and enjoy some croquet, maybe for an annual trip, or as a special occasion in your calendar. Whether your group are skateboarders or U3A members, bell-ringers or board gamers, Samaritans or Soroptimists, we'll do our best to make sure you have a wonderful, memorable time. We provide all the croquet equipment; you just need to come wearing flat-soled footwear such as trainers and dressed for the outdoors. One of our friendly willing volunteer club members will be there to look after you: to set up equipment in advance, welcome you, show you how to play Golf Croquet, get you started, answer questions, and maybe get the kettle on when you're ready for a cuppa.
Groups normally stay for up to 2 hours. Some groups like to bring their own refreshments to picnic in our beautiful grounds. We can provide teas and coffees etc. Let us know what you'd like and we'll do our best to make it a great experience for your group.
We charge a modest fee for these sessions, to cover the use of our finely tended lawns, club quality equipment, hot and cold drinks and the support of one or more of our members. Do get in touch using our contact form if your group might be interested, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can, and find a suitable date.
