Croquet Club Facilities
The Croquet Club shares superb facilities with cricket and tennis as part of the Sidmouth Fortfield Sports Complex. Croquet was played in Victorian Sidmouth as early as 1900 as part of the original Sidmouth Cricket, Tennis, Croquet & Hockey Club. Members enjoy full clubhouse facilities with bar and in-house catering. The club has a friendly atmosphere and an ongoing social life including events such as dinners, demonstrations, illustrated talks, fun events, wine and buffet evenings and other activities. After a croquet session, it is good to be able to watch a top-class game of cricket over a well-earned drink! As well as hosting National Tournaments, the Croquet club holds its own competitions and is a member of the South West Federation League, competing at beginners, intermediate and advanced levels.
About the Club
Spectators are always welcome and members will be delighted to be asked to explain the finer points of the game. There are additional coaching opportunities throughout the summer for beginners and more advanced players.
All that is needed to play is a pair of flat soled shoes as the Club can provide mallets and other equipment. So please feel free to contact us and come along and come along to enjoy this super game in a very friendly atmosphere!
