Taster sessions

Drop-in taster afternoons are offered each month from May to July. These are informal sessions offering have-a-go croquet, guidance and information. 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!

Sunday 5 June 2 pm to 4 pm (National Croquet Day)

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.

Drop-in taster afternoon at Rowntree Park in 2016:
