Croquet is a game that can be played and enjoyed by people of any age. At our Club we play golf croquet, which is a game of skill and tactics. The basics are quick to learn although players will find they are constantly improving as they play. Men and women play and compete on equal terms.

We are a small and friendly Club based in Barnstaple, and as such you do not need to book time on the lawns or come with others to play, as everyone here is quite happy to play with each other.

Our Club days are Monday and Thursday from 10.00 and usually end around 15.30. Our Outdoor Season starts at the beginning of April and continues until the end of September. We play indoors on Thursdays from October to March at a new venue – the Tarka Tennis Centre

Croquet is the most well kept secret among sports, mainly because it is a sport to be played rather than watched. It is not only good exercise for both body and brain but is a chance to relax and socialise in a friendly group in beautiful surroundings.
