Chester Croquet Club was formed in 1977 and has been meeting in Westminster Park since 1981 where it now has four full lawns. The club has been going from strength to strength and membership has doubled in the last five years to a record level of 105. It is a friendly club and welcomes players of all standards from absolute beginners to more experienced players.
The club offers a wide variety of association and golf croquet games to suit all abilities throughout the normal playing season from April to September. If weather conditions are favourable, play can continue throughout the autumn through to Christmas.
The club arranges numerous internal league games and tournaments and takes part in inter-club league matches and tournaments organised by the North West Federation of Croquet Clubs. In addition to these games, the club also runs beginners’ courses every year and various coaching sessions throughout the playing season. The next beginners’ course will start towards the end of April 2011. Mark it in your diaries, tell your friends, and come along!
