The old pavilion The old bowling greens

The club, originally known as Bush Croquet Club, moved from Penicuik to its present site in Edinburgh in 2000, taking over two disused bowling greens at the west end of The Meadows.  With the support of the City of Edinburgh Council and financed by fundraising activities throughout Scottish croquet, the Scottish Croquet Association successfully applied for a lottery grant from sportscotland to establish a national centre for the game in Scotland.

The project involved digging up the central path between the two old bowling greens and laying new turf to create three first class croquet lawns.  Artificial banks were installed so that the greens could continue to be used for bowls as well as croquet.  The pavilion was also upgraded to provide proper facilities inside including access for the disabled.

For the first time, Scottish croquet had a headquarters of its own with excellent facilities for developing croquet players at all levels and for hosting major tournaments and international competitions.  In addition the greens are available for use by bowling organisations and the pavilion for hire by local community groups.
