Croquet is a game that is relatively easy to understand and fun to play. Not quite the same as the game you may have played in the backyard; a little more tricky to play but a game you’ll enjoy learning.
Discover all the fun that can be had on the lawns in this fascinating open air game of skill and tactics.
If you missed us at Open House on April 7th and 8th, you can still register for lessons. See below for lesson times and registration information.

Over the winter, any day that the croquet lawn is not being used for other purposes, members may come in and set up a court for croquet. On even-numbered days, croquet uses the lower lawn; on odd-numbered days, croquet uses the upper lawn. If you have any questions about court set-up, please contact one of the experienced players to get assistance.
Also, please note that for croquet play, you can come at any time during the open play period. Games start when there’s room on the court and players available. Call other players on the contact list to make sure an opponent will be there!
