Croquet is fun, competitive, social and everyone can play on an equal level regardless of sex or age. It’s a game of strategic thinking, skill and eye-to-ball contact and focuses on four balls, six hoops and a mallet. It has been described a bit like snooker on grass and is great for day-to-day health and well-being.
Following the success of the introductory sessions, we will look to perhaps running another course later in the year so if you are intersted, please email Secretary@enfieldcroquet.org and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
In the meantime, please do click on this link to learn a little more about the game. The two films further below also provide a useful overview of the game - and how we are able to play safely and socially-distanced.
More pictures from the course can be found here.

New Season Commences
The new season has started - and we are enjoying the opportunity to be back on the lawns playing croquet with friends and fellow members in a socially distanced way. We're also busy honing our skills in readiness for the various competitive fixtures which are being arranged - details to be announced shortly.
Club afternoons are Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday starting at 2 pm onwards.
As ever, we need to follow all Covid full guidelines and recommendations details of which can be found on this link.
Much has been done over recent weeks in readiness for our reopening and work will continue to ensure the grounds are up to playing standards.
Wednesdays are mowing and gardening days so if anyone fancies a few hours honing their skills, please contact Brian or Nicola.
Naturally all work will also be undertaken "socially distanced".
