Playing Association Croquet in the heart of Yorkshire

York Croquet Club is a 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.

Croquet can be played on equal terms by people regardless of gender or age. It relies on strategy not strength. The main playing season runs from April to early October; a social programme keeps us together during the winter months. We have three good croquet lawns and two small practice lawns.  There is a Clubhouse with kitchen and also toilet facilities on site.


We offer croquet for community groups, and croquet for work team-building sessions. We can hire modern or vintage croquet equipment at attractive rates so you can add croquet to your own outdoor event.
