Welcome to Abbey Croquet Club. We are a small friendly club with one lawn located in the Victoria Field Social Club, Street.
Membership is open to all – any age or ability including complete beginners.
Members play two versions of the game; Association Croquet (AC) resembles Garden Croquet (without the foot on the ball!) and Golf Croquet (GC) is a newer and popular version putting your ball first through each hoop to score.
Some members play in local leagues organised by the South West Federation of Croquet Clubs whilst others just play socially – it’s a very friendly game.
We only wear whites for league matches and there are mallets to borrow.
Members play anytime (and all year if you want, subject to the state of the lawn) but there are specific club days – currently Sunday afternoon (AC and GC), Wednesday afternoon (GC) and Thursday evening (AC). Check the calendar for the latest information.
Abbey Croquet Club has recently built a new clubhouse next to the lawn and we have full use of the Victoria Club facilities for refreshments.
If you would like to join us or just try out Croquet (first games are free) do contact us – new members are always welcome. Equipment and training provided. As a member of the club access to the lawn and equipment is granted at anytime throughout the season with the exception of the some regular sessions, match practices and home matches. See the events list for more information.
