Membership of the club is open to anyone interested in croquet.  If you wish to apply for membership, please complete and send this form and tender your subscription by bank transfer if possible or send a cheque otherwise.  You will have to undertake to abide by the Club Rules.  Membership details are held on computers, will be supplied to the Croquet Association (CA) if you agree to become a member of it or play in tournaments run under its auspices, and contact details are published in the club handbook.  The club has policies on Data ProtectionSafeguardingEquality and Environment and Sustainability, and also Guidance for safe play.

Subscription rates are set by the AGM in April each year.  The full subscription rates for 2020 are:

  • £175 for full members,
  • £115 for country members (living more than 20 miles away as the crow flies),
  • £30 for Far Country members (living more than 50 miles away as the crow flies),
  • £30 for students,
  • £25 for juniors, and
  • £15 for non-playing members. 

Reduced rates of £90 and £125 apply to players new to the game in their first and second seasons respectively, or £60 and £85 respectively if they are country members, and new members who join on or after 1st August pay 25% of the full subscription for the remainder of the year, and the following season is deemed to be their first full season.  

There are no green fees for members.  

Full and Country Members for whom Nottingham is not their primary club (for the purpose of CA membership) can deduct £10 from these figures.

In future years, a scheme for a temporary Introductory membership may be available for new members who are on the Beginner Coaching programme.  The cost for this would include coaching materials and be deductible from the first year's full subscription if they choose to extend their membership for the rest of the season.
