Come and Give It A Try

Bath Croquet Club will be holding our annual Charity Open Afternoon on Saturday April 28th 2018 when people are encouraged to come and give the game a try. Members will be on hand to provide tuition and there will be fun croquet-related games held throughout the day. All equipment is provided by the club; you just need to wear flat soled shoes.
