Summer’s coming, make the most of it!

Welcome for new members and learners


Croquet may not be an Olympic sport but it’s a game that can be played and enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. It does not require the strength or stamina needed for more strenuous sports and the handicapping system means that it can be played on equal terms by men and women from beginners to more experienced players.

Now that we are looking forward to warmer days and longer evenings, why not come and try your hand at croquet as an interesting and enjoyable outdoor leisure activity for the summer months?

This year Chester Croquet Club is offering a free taster session on Sunday afternoon, 15 April, from 2 to 5 pm at the club’s lawns in Westminster Park off Hough Green in Chester.

For those who would like to develop their skills further, there will be two further introductory sessions for golf croquet at 2 pm on Sunday afternoons on 22 and 29 April. These sessions are ideal for people who have not played the game before and who would like to learn more about it. The club is also offering a more comprehensive introductory course for association croquet at 6.30 pm on Thursday evenings for six weeks from 3 May to 7 June. This course is aimed at people who have played some croquet before, perhaps golf croquet or garden croquet, and who would like to develop their skills and tactics for association croquet.

All equipment is provided by the club and the only requirement is that players must wear flat-soled shoes.

If you are interested in joining the initial taster session or the introductory sessions for golf croquet, please contact Pat Clare on 0151 3362606. For more information about the club or to enroll on the introductory course for association croquet, please contact the Club Secretary, Janet Davies, on 01244 350370.

Come and join in and make the most of the summer
