Nailsea and District Croquet Club

LATEST NEWS – Christmas Offer!

We now have vouchers available for beginners lessons.  In  2022, a course of six lessons will cost £60 but we can offer you vouchers for £50 each  if bought before Christmas. This can be an Early Bird purchase for yourself or a present for someone else. Coaching is given to small groups with all equipment provided. All the recipients of vouchers in recent years have enjoyed their lessons and have gone on to join the Croquet Club. The subscription rate for those joining the club is reduced by the £60 already paid for beginners’ lessons. Further coaching after joining the Club is free of charge.

If you are interested in purchasing vouchers, email kathy@jnwallace.f9.co.uk  or phone 07718 62828 or 01275 847902

 We enjoyed a much more normal season in 2021 although indoor activity was limited to use of basic facilities.  27 people had Beginners lessons and 18 of them went on to join the club. !2 of them took part in the Beginners Competitions in October. The others enjoyed playing social croquet. For established players, the Leagues were re-started and the usual four tournaments took place. We also hosted the GC Home Internationals on behalf of Wales and the Selectors Weekend on behalf of the CA.

Croquet is a sport that requires physical skill and also strategic ability. With the two main forms of croquet being played at Nailsea  (Association Croquet and Golf Croquet) there is something for everyone. Some members love to play in internal competitions, league matches and Tournaments; others prefer to just play friendly games on Club afternoon. Croquet can be played by people of all ages and we have a Youth section for ages 12-16 and sometimes younger.  

We are always keen to recruit new players. Croquet is a Covid-safe sport and is very appropriate after the horrors of 2020. Get yourself fit again, both physically and mentally by taking on a brand new challenge. You might just be good enough to play at National level. Nailsea has a strong tradition of producing elite players who go on to represent their club and country and to take part in World Championships.
