Enfield Croquet Club
Enfield Croquet Club
Introductory Course
 
Details of the next course are to be announced but herewith an introduction to what it's all about!
 
Croquet is part of the family of precision sports, alongside snooker, darts, or bowls, and is played both socially and competitively. There are two internationally-recognised codes: Association Croquet and Golf Croquet, both of which are played at the club.
 
The game does not require strength, stamina, or speed and is a game of precision, accuracy and strategy. Once you try it, you'll never look back.   Croquet is ideal for both men and women and the introductory course we would run provides a fantastic opportunty to play this delightful outdoor sport.
 
All equipment is provided, with coaching by senior members of the Club; flat shoes or trainers are the only requirement. As our weather is not predictable, always good to wear layers and have a waterproof jacket to hand.

 

The courses run along the following lines.  You will be welcomed with a hot drink at 9.45am and introduced to other attendees and invited to try out a croquet mallet for size.  Sessions last about two hours.  It is recommended that you attend at least two sessions.  Please note that there are public toilets very close to the lawns, and toilets can also be accessed in the nearby Club Hut.

 

SESSIONS

You will soon be practising the basic shots needed to play and control the croquet balls. Even on your first session, you will take part in a team of doubles in a full game of golf croquet and we hope you will be able to appreciate and enjoy the strategy and fun of the competitive game.
