York Croquet Club lawns are at Scarcroft Green, Scarcroft Road, York. We have sole use of two excellent croquet lawns and two small practice lawns. We share a third lawn with bowls players and also share a clubhouse with them.
The Club is in the railed off area between the seven semi-detached houses and the main expanse of Scarcroft Green: look for the small gate in the railings. See map below.
