The club usually entertains a number of social groups each year, either as one of the regular meetings of a voluntary organisation or as a special event, e.g. an office awayday. Golf Croquet is usually played, as it can be enjoyed by people with no previous experience. All equipment is provided, but participants should be asked to bring flat soled footwear and outdoor clothing appropriate for the weather!
Sessions typically last 1.5 - 2 hours and some groups bring refreshments to enjoy afterwards in the pavilion. Hot drinks and crockery can be provided.
The maximum size of a group is normally 24 players. Sessions are hosted by a club member.
For further information or to book a session, please use the contact form (specifying the Social Groups category). When planning dates, evening sessions are best held in June, July and August (when it is both light and, hopefully, warm) and should avoid Tuesdays (which are club days), and Tournaments.
We are sorry that Nottingham Croquet Club is unable to host social groups during the current playing season due to necessary social distancing and hygiene rules linked to Covid 19. It is likely that play will be available to club members only for the remainder of the 2020 season. If you are keen to hear about membership or would like to add your social group to a waiting list then please use the contact form on this site - we’d love to hear from you. Meanwhile stay safe and thank you for getting in touch.
