New to Croquet? Learn to play.

Nottingham Croquet Club welcomes new members of all ages and backgrounds, including people who are completely new to croquet, and offers a range of activities and support to help you try out, learn, enjoy and master this fascinating, engaging sport, and participate in the life of the club.

If you are interested in learning croquet in 2021, do please contact us at any time using the enquiry form. We will do our best to accomodate your needs. Dropping in at the club during the season may also be possible - we welcome visitors (when COVID restrictions permit)  - but there may or may not be someone present who is free and available to help. 


Learn to Play courses for 2021. 

This program is based on our best estimate of what the state of lockdown will permit at different stages of the year, and is thus subject to change.

The best way to start is to come to one of our popular free Open Days  - details here - and then if you would like to take it further, follow it up by joining the club at our special rate for new members, and taking one of the three Learn to Play courses: 

  • 6 Sunday mornings (2 hour sessions) from 18th April to 30th May followed by 2 Thursday evenings -  3rd and 10th June.

  • ​8 Tuesday evenings (2 hour sessions) from 1st June to 20th July.

  • Full weekend on 29th and 30th May. 

​There may be further opportunities later in the season depending on demand. There will also be ongoing coaching support available after formal courses are complete and an opportunity to take part in a beginners’ tournament at the end of the season.

All our courses are intended to be enjoyable and sociable as well as instructive. No croquet equipment is needed; just come with flat-soled footwear and suitably comfortable clothing for an outdoor activity.  

For more information or to register an interest, please contact our membership secretary by using the Enquiries form.
