Have a go yourself

Members of the public, as individuals or in groups, are welcome to have a go at the game virtually any day during our 6 month playing season. Drop-ins welcome but to be sure of a slot, please book ahead. Various options are shown below. No equipment needed but please wear trainers or flat soles to protect our fine turf.


Free taster sessions
Fancy a go at croquet? Never tried it properly before? Why not come on one of our free “taster sessions”. We’ll welcome you with open arms.  Please ask in person or using our website contact form. One of our friendly volunteers will show you the ropes for an hour or so.  

Lawn Fee sessions 
We offer ad hoc play to small groups of passers-by on a casual basis for payment of a modest lawn fee. So long as there’s a free lawn and a member to help, we’ll set up the kit, show you or remind how to play if you like, and leave you to enjoy for a session of 2-3 hours. If you keep coming back for more we may encourage you to join the club. 

Pay & Play
We offer one-hour slots bookable online through EventBrite depending on demand. If there are no slots on EventBrite convenient for you, please let us know using the General Enquiries contact form and we will find a way to accommodate you. 

Organised Groups
If you are an organised group and/or travelling specially, and wish to book ahead and have the support of volunteers, we advise you to take up one of our Social Group bookings where – for a modest fee – we will reserve lawns and equipment for you and arrange for our friendly helpers to be on site to host and support and ensure you have a great visit. Check out our tremendous feedback. 

Health and well-being organisations
As part of our efforts to broaden access to sport, we offer free sessions to charities and other non-profit organisations seeking health and well-being benefits from a non-energetic, non-contact and low stress sport. Sessions are supported sensitively by our DBS-certified volunteers working alongside your organisation’s helpers, and have a strong emphasis on fun, accessibility and enjoyment.
