Cheltenham Croquet  Club is one of the largest in the country  , we have 11 full size lawns and a small practice area. Our members are of all ages and both sexes, ranging from complete beginners to players of county and even international standard.

 

New members are welcome, and a free introductory coaching session is provided with further lessons available.  ( see Learn)

 

All variations of croquet - handicap, advanced, speed, golf and one ball - are played all year round. Lawns are available during the winter months for hardier members!  There are many Club competitions

 

 

The Club has hosted a number of major Championships - in 2005 the Club hosted the World Championships and in  2009 Cheltenham hosted the Mitsubishi Motors European Team Championship.

 

The national Croquet Association now has its headquarters in the Club grounds.

 

There are two mains forms of Croquet- both played on the same layout of lawn. The skills required for each overlap  and many people play both forms of the game.In Association Croquet  one player at a time  tries to make a "break"     ( as in snooker) using the balls as "stepping-stones" round the lawn . In Golf Croquet  the players follow a course  contesting each hoop in turn; as soon as one hoop is scored all players move on to contest the . Both forms of the game are played here

 

Spectators are always welcome and members are delighted to be asked to explain the game.

There are coaching opportunities throughout the  summer for beginners and more advanced players.

All that is needed is a pair of flat-soled shoes as the Club provides mallets and other equipment.

So come along and give these fascinating games a try.
