A very warm welcome to the website of Sidmouth Croquet Club from the Chairman (Peter Nelson)
Why not visit the Club? We have four full size lawns in a beautiful location on East Devon's Jurassic Coast overlooking the sea, next to cricket and tennis facilities, in the south of the town. There are about 100 active members of all ages and both sexes, ranging from complete beginners to players at county and regional standard.
AGMThe 2016 Croquet AGM went off well on Tuesday. Over 50 members and friends enjoyed interesting reports and an excellent meal. Some of the prize winners are in the group photo: Andrew Thomas, Steven Pearson, Sue Dent, Paul Griew, Ian Friedlander, Richard Thurlow, Philip Harris, Peter Hills, Kelvin Dent, Sue Rogers, David Mundy, Julie Horsley
We play all variations of croquet - handicap, advanced, golf, and one ball, in a season stretching from late March to mid October.
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.
Spectators are always welcome and members are 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!
