We are fortunate enough to have a thriving Juniors programme, thanks largely to the initiative, effort and leadership of Ian Draper.

All activities involving children are supervised by DBS-certified club members. Parents, guardians, teachers etc are very welcome to attend (and may be offered an opportunity to have a go themselves!). Our policies page includes details of our safeguarding policy and welfare officer (formerly known as safeguarding officer). We respect privacy and do not take or publish photos including recognisable children without explicit permission of a parent or guardian and the willingness of the individual(s).

The planned activities for 2022 are below. 

Croquet in local Primary  schools

The schools programme will be offered to all year 6 pupils at The Lanes, Dunkirk, Roundhill, John Clifford Primary and Beeston fields primary schools.

It will begin in early June and will consist of two in-school sessions followed by four after-school sessions on Wednesdays.

Junior Club

Every Wednesday after school, from 4pm – 5.30pm 

Every Thursday after school from 4.30 - 6.00 for Junior Squad

Summer School

We hope to be able to run our popular Mallet Sports Summer School again this season, but have no firm plans as yet due to our vounteer workforce being already over-comitted. Details will be added here if it can be arranged. In past years it has been one week of afternoon sessions at the end of the summer term.

Junior members are invited to participate in the club social doubles events on many Saturday afternoons from 2pm - 5:30pm,  club roll-up sessions and beginners' tournaments.

  • 30th August High Wycombe
  • Sept/Oct  Junior tournament
