Try Croquet taster sessions

Drop-in Try Croquet taster afternoons are offered regularly through the playing season. These are informal sessions offering have-a-go croquet, information and guidance. No experience of the game is necessary.

There is no need to book – just turn up at the York Croquet Club lawns on Scarcroft Green with flat-soled footwear and try the game!

Sessions are free of charge and all equipment is supplied. No need to book – just turn up.  This is an excellent way to see if croquet is for you by trying a simple version of the game. 

We are also offering an opportunity for drop-in have-a-go croquet at Rowntree Park, the popular 20-acre public park by the River Ouse a short walk from York city centre.
