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 or Golf Croquet coaching courses yet planned for 2018, but if you are interested in any 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.
