Our club provides a superb three lawn facility in central Tunbridge Wells, with our own clubhouse. For parking and how to find us see our Location page.
We have weekly informal/social club sessions with 10-25 players. Members can play at any time during our main playing season from April to September, with limited playing during the rest of the year.
We also run
- free coaching sessions for both beginners and experienced players,
- many internal competitions and open tournaments,
- regular matches against other clubs in the South East and
- an active social programme.
Croquet is a game played by 2 or 4 players with mallets, 4 balls and 6 hoops on a flat grass lawn twice the size of a lawn tennis court. There are two main versions: one learnt in 10 minutes and quite an aggressive game, the other is like snooker on grass and takes more time to master. The Croquet Association video below tells you more.
