Ever thought of organising an afternoon or evening out for the office? Or perhaps a party with a difference? Try croquet! It's something that everybody can do, regardless of fitness level. It's something different. It's sociable. It's fun.
We can host a party or corporate afternoon or evening for you. We'll set up the lawns, provide all the equipment and have people on hand to show you what to do. We've got a pavilion with toilets, kitchen and club room and there are plenty of good pubs and restaurants nearby to go on to afterwards. And all this from just £20/head. The minimum number of people required is 12. (You can bring fewer than 12 but the minimum charge will be for 12 people). There is no absolute maximum, but if there are more than 24 people then not everybody will be able to play all the time, as we only have space for 6 games of doubles at any one time. But, on the other hand, this provides opportunities for socialising. The only thing your guests will need to bring is a pair of flat-soled shoes - trainers are fine.
There are a number of versions of croquet that can be played, but we find that the one that works best for such events is a version called Golf Croquet. A short summary of the rules can be found here. We normally play best of seven hoops in doubles pairs.
We normally try and reserve Thursday afternoons and evenings for these events. Other times may be possible depending on club fixtures.
