Croquet can be a really easy game, but it really helps your enjoyment of the game if you’ve been taught the proper rules, how to hold your mallet, hit a ball properly, run hoops and make breaks.
Our one day Introduction to Croquet course provides a full introduction to the two main varieties of croquet. We’ll be running it twice in 2020 (we ran it four times in 2019, because we held part of World Golf Croquet Championship here.
The course dates for 2020 are Saturdays 2nd and 30th May with a later possibility on 11th July if there’s sufficient demand.
Don’t worry if you know nothing about croquet – this course is designed for you! Or if you have played croquet before, perhaps in the garden, but aren’t really sure about all the rules, then come along – we’ll teach you everything you need to know.
AM – How to hold a mallet, hit straight and run hoops
– Golf Croquet
– Association Croquet: two ball shots (croquet shots) and making breaks
– Simple tactics
PM – 3-ball breaks
– Rushes, Split shots and Rolls
– How to make life difficult for your opponent
– Starting and finishing tactics
What you need: just a pair of flat soled shoes (trainers are fine) and your lunch (the cafe in the park will be open, but queues can build up if it’s a nice day, and the schedule is tight).
A free follow up session will be run at a mutually agreeable later date for those who’ve joined the club, to take you into more detail on shots, tactics and strategies.
The cost for the course is just £25 per person, including light refreshments.
