The Club opened for the season on 3 April and we have enjoyed a much more normal season in 2021. 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 usual four tournaments took place and 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 Junior section. Coaching is given to small groups with all equipment provided. A charge of £30 is made for six lessons of around 2 hours. Please contact us if you are interested in a course of lessons. We also sell vouchers for sets of lessons – for that friend or relative who is difficult to find presents for.

In 2021 we have been particularly keen to recruit new players. Croquet is a Covid-safe sport and is very appropriate in this first season 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.
