LEARN TO PLAY CROQUET IN
We have a couple of open
events planned for 2018:
National Croquet Day on Sunday 13th May, when our lawns will
be open to the public for visitors to try the game at any time between 2pm
and 5pm, with refreshments available.
Come and try Croquet on Tuesday 5th June from 4pm to 7pm Ė
another chance for prospective players to try croquet.† Club players will be on hand to guide visitors
through the basics, including some friendly games.† Come along to all or part of the session.
Both of these open sessions are free of charge and take place on our Ashby
Croquet Club lawns at Moira Miners Welfare sports ground, Bath Lane, Moira DE12
6BP.† All equipment is provided, but please wear comfortable flat-soled shoes
If you canít wait for these events, then just come along to one of our club
sessions from April onwards where you will be made welcome, and club players
will be pleased to introduce you to the game of Golf Croquet.† Our main club session times are: Sundays
from 2.30 to 5pm; Tuesdays 4pm to 7pm; Wednesdays 11am to 1pm; Thursdays 4pm
If you enjoy the introductory sessions and you would like to take croquet a
stage further, we have a special introductory club membership rate for new
players, which is just £20 for the rest of the year including ongoing
coaching in golf croquet and/or association croquet as required.† And for the following year we then offer half-price
club membership to new players in their second season with the club.
GROUP TASTER SESSIONS
We also arrange croquet taster
sessions for outside groups and organisations, e.g. WI groups and Round
Table.† Taster sessions are normally
held on Monday or Wednesday evenings from 6.30 to 8.30pm, between mid-May and
mid-August. The charge for a two-hour session is £5.00 per person, with a
minimum charge of £50.00 (i.e. 10 people).†
We can also arrange a buffet after the croquet, if you require, at an
additional cost of £6.00 per person (minimum 10 people).† If you would like to book a croquet taster
session for your group, please contact †(tel. 01332 774296) or (tel. 01283 223152).
