Welcome to Enfield Croquet Club

20th December 2020  


Our Lawns are now closed until further notice.


In theory two people could still meet outdoors and maybe even play under tier 4 rules however the lawns are not currently playable due to the wet conditions and the inability to complete planned work.


One masked individual (two if in a family bubble) only in the hut for the duration of Tier 4.


If and when Tier 4 ends we may reopen this winter dependent on the Lawn Groups advice. 


Thank you to everyone for your support this year and we look forward to a safe and healthier 2021.  With season's greetings!

GC Champion Crowned!


The recent weekend of GC croquet at Wrest Park saw club member Kim Taylor (on the right) come home as GC Champion.  
A personal account of his journey can be found here.   Congratulations Kim!

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!



As soon as we are able, we will launch a free introductory course to croquet.   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.
