Learn to Play Croquet

The best way to learn Croquet is to join the Club.  Most members start by playing Golf Croquet and many also try their hand at Association Croquet although it tends to take a little time to come to terms with this more complex version of the sport.

This year we will be holding taster sessions on the mornings of Saturday 18th April and Saturday 25th April 2020. Each session begins at 10:30 and lasts two hours. At these sessions you will be able to try Golf Croquet and there will also be demonstrations of Association Croquet.

After the taster sessions you can join the Club with a reduced membership fee for your first season of only £40. During the rest of the season you will be able to develop your skills at Golf Croquet.  We will also hold regular development sessions on Tuesday mornings to allow you to learn the skills of Association Croquet.  We may also hold further Association Croquet development sessions at other times if there is sufficient demand.

The taster sessions will take place in the grounds of Lauriston Castle.  All equipment is provided, though participants are asked to wear flat-soled shoes to avoid damage to the lawns. 

We expect the taster sessions to be very popular so we would advise you to register in advance. All you have to do to register is to send an email with your name and phone number to beginners@edinburghcroquetclub.com. If you have problems with the link just send a normal email to the same address. If you don't have email just drop by and any member on the lawns will take your details.
