Welcome

York Croquet Club

Playing Association Croquet in the heart of Yorkshire

York Croquet Club is a small, friendly club playing Association Croquet – the Queen of Games – not far from York’s city walls. New members are always very welcome. Croquet is sociable, socially distanced, absorbing and great to play. Join us!

York Croquet Club began life in 1988 and meets on the Club’s croquet lawns at Scarcroft Green, Scarcroft Road, York.  A number of our members are qualified coaches and we offer taster sessions and introductory courses for those wanting to explore the delights of this absorbing game. There are no special requirements other than flat-soled footwear. All equipment is supplied.

Because croquet relies on strategy not strength, it can be played on equal terms by people regardless of gender or age. The playing season runs from April to early October; a social programme keeps us together during the winter months. We are lucky enough to have three of the best croquet lawns in Yorkshire and two small practice lawns.

We offer croquet for community groups, and croquet for work team-building sessions.  Or why not add croquet to an outdoor event? – we can hire modern or vintage croquet equipment at reasonable rates.

We hope this website answers some of the questions you may have. If you would like to find out more about the game of croquet or about York Croquet Club, please ring the Chairman, John Harris, 01904 620211, or the Secretary, Alison Larard, 01904  674699, or email us at yorkcroquet@gmail.com. We will do all we can to help.

We returned to the lawns for our 2021 season at the very end of March.  We run Introductory courses early in the season for those wanting to learn the game, and, later in the season, two one-day experiences of croquet – for details see the website section Try the Game.  If you think you may be interested in trying croquet, learning the game or joining the Club – or if you would simply like to find out more about the Club or about croquet generally – please be in touch now on 01904 620211, on 01904 674699 or at yorkcroquet@gmail.com   We’ll be very pleased to help.
