Learn to Play Croquet with us

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.

We hope to hold hold Taster Sessions from time to time during the season to allow you to try Golf Croquet.  

After the taster sessions you can join the Club if you wish. During your first season you will be able to develop your skills at Golf Croquet.  We also plan to hold development sessions to allow you to learn the skills of Association Croquet.  

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. 

The taster sessions tend to be very popular so we would advise you to register in advance - taster sessions of the 2024 season will be held at 10am on Saturday 13th April and Saturday 27th April. All you have to do to register is to send an email with your name and phone number to beginners@edinburghcroquetclub.com. If you don't have email just drop by and any member on the lawns will take your details.

We also run Taster Sessions for groups of people who would like to enjoy a couple of hours trying out the sport. If you are interested send an email to beginners@edinburghcroquetclub.com
