Enfield Croquet Club
New Season commences Saturday 1 April

Free Introductory Croquet Course 2017

Wednesday 5 April and Saturday 8 April

Wednesday 12 April and Saturday 15 April

Wednesday 19 April and Saturday 22 April

Start time: 9.45 a.m. meet for a 10.00 a.m. start and sessions will end at about midday.

 

Newcomers and past players are equally welcome.

 

This is your chance to discover the joys of this delightfully simple outdoor game played at a walking pace by all in a relaxed atmosphere. Croquet is a game of acquired skills that doesn't require speed or power, but rather thoughtful play.

 

Anyone who can hold a mallet and propel a ball over a lawn reasonably accurately can play so it is ideal for those who enjoy sport but who no longer have quite the same speed or reflexes required in many other sports.

 

These friendly training sessions will be conducted by our Club Coach who will be assisted by experienced players and all equipment will be supplied free. All you need to bring along are flat shoes, such as trainers, and clothes appropriate for the weather on any given day.

 

We recommend a minimum of two sessions but you are free to enjoy as many sessions as you wish.

 

Registration is essential however – so to ensure a place on our course phone or email Marian Cuckson our Club Secretary.

Spring 2016 Introductory Croquet Course Members comments

 

"Very much appreciated the time and patience of all those tutoring, it's almost unheard of in many sports' clubs."
Marian Hardy

 

"The hardest part was finding the gate onto the lawns"

 

"We were able to play a game by the second introductory session"

 

"The club members were all very friendly and helpful"

 

"Being able to use club mallets meant no initial start up costs"

Alan Bateman

 

My partner Fiona was looking for an outdoor game that we could both play and found your website.

 

The introductory classes were well manned and we have really enjoyed our 1st year, it's been a pleasure meeting new people and we've genuinely made some new friends.

 

The competitions were well organised and we look forward to more of the same next year. It's a shame winter has curtailed our playing and we both look forward to springtime and more regular playing again.
