We run eleven York Croquet Club tournaments and competitions. Five of them are Short Croquet; five are full lawn croquet; and for one, anything goes! Short Croquet games don’t take long, typically about an hour. They are played on a lawn a little larger than a doubles tennis court with just six hoops and a peg to score. Full lawn is played on a lawn twice the size of a Short Croquet lawn, with more hoops to run. Expect a game to last for a couple of hours or so. We play in four north of England Leagues.
