Why Not Give it a Try?

Croquet is a fascinating game played by men and women of all ages. It is a summer sport played on a grass court the size of two tennis courts. It is a game which requires ball skills and tactics and is very social.
 
Bath Croquet Club has four full sized lawns and is based in the centre of Bath on the Recreation Ground, opposite Bath Rugby.
 
We will be holding our annual Open Day in conjunction with Dorothy House on Saturday 22nd April 2017 and our popular 'Introduction to Croquet' course starts on Saturday 29th April, running for five consecutive Saturday mornings. The cost of the 2017 course is just £25.
