Welcome to Enfield Croquet Club

Our One-Ball Champion

Michael Broadway won the Charity One-Ball Championship on 20th September beating a field of 23 participants.

 

Held at Surbiton, players were invited to wear something green in support of Macmillan Cancer - hence his deboniar attire of a three-piece white suit and green bow tie!

 

Michael received the engraved crystal decanter for his 7 wins from 8 games, his nearest rivals received runner-up goblets: Colin Groves (6, Woking) and Stephen Wright (-3, High Wycombe).

In Memory - Joan and Basil Lawrence

We were delighted to welcome the family of Joan and Basil Lawrence on Saturday, 12th September to formally dedicate the bench that they have kindly given the Club in their memory.  Joan and Basil were founding members back in 1993 and it's lovely that we have a lasting reminder of their great contribution.   

 

The bench is a very welcome addition to our lawns and already being much used!

FREE INTRODUCTORY CROQUET TRAINING COURSE

 

Enfield Croquet Club was unable to go ahead with our usual April traning course for obvious reasons but we are pleased to have been running some free introductory sessions on our lawns.    

 

Croquet is a sport that relies on ability and strategy rather than agility, speed and strength and is ideal for our current times.

 

If you are interested to learning croquet please contact Brian - email gooner48@blueyonder.co.uk or call 07813 382743.
