Croquet 2020 Season

We will be starting our 4th season in April. Our Venue is Cote Heath Bowling Club where we share their Green.

We play weekly on Monday afternoons,between 2-5pm.Thanks to the Croquet Associationand and the Federation of East Midlands Croquet Clubs we have on loan some £1400 worth of equipment,mallets,Foxy hoops and balls.The Foxy hoops came from Canada and we appreciate the help buxton U3A gave with the shipping costs Using these hoops on the bowling green means we are part of an ongoing assessment by the Croquet Association of both Green sharing and the use of Foxy hoops which is common practice in USA and Canada.

Last season we played in 2 Friendly Games with Darly Dale and this year seek to develop the Friendlys with more of the neighbouring clubs

The format is "easy come easy go" within those times. So far we have played Golf Croquet and there is the possibility of adding Association Croquet from time to time.

We now have enough equipment for 16 players at once so...
Why not come along for a "taster session"? You will be very welcome, no experience necessary,most of us are/were beginners!!
