The main requirements are that players must wear flat-soled shoes and use the Club’s hoops, which are specific to each lawn, and other croquet equipment under the supervision of one or more members of the Club. Croquet mallets are available for use though players may bring their own if they wish.

Playing Fees

Guests of the Club, guests of members of the Club and members of the public may use the Club’s facilities on a reasonable number of occasions in any season on payment of a playing fee of £5 per person per morning or afternoon or evening visit. Children, grandchildren and occasional private guests playing with members of the Club may play without charge. Non-members are encouraged to become a member of the Club in which case the amount paid in playing fees is deducted from the relevant annual subscription. In all cases, guests and members of the public must be accompanied and supervised by a member of the Club.

The Club is willing to host organised private, community and corporate group events and charges will be considered and agreed case by case. Charity events when entry charges are for the benefit of a registered charity will normally be hosted by the Club free of charge. Please contact the Club Secretary.
