Welcome to Hunstanton Croquet Club
Hunstanton Croquet Club (Founded in 1911) is a growing friendly club based in the town. We have five lawns, car parking and a well-equipped club house.
We take part in the East Anglian Federation Leagues
and field teams, who compete in all forms of croquet disciplines & levels.
There are two main forms of Croquet- both played on the same layout of lawn. The skills required for each overlap and many people play both forms of the game. In Association Croquet one player at a time tries to make a "break" (as in snooker) using the balls as stepping-stones around the lawn. In Golf Croquet the players follow a course contesting each hoop in turn; as soon as one hoop is scored all players move on to contest the next hoop. Both forms of the game are played here at Hunstanton. Spectators are always welcome and members are delighted to be asked to explain the game.
All that is needed is a pair of flat-soled shoes as the Club initially provides mallets.
If you're looking for an activity which satisfies your competitive instinct, or just fancy a game on a Club afternoon, why not give Croquet a try?
We host Tournaments and Competitions each season (details of which can be found on the Calendar Page
). Hunstanton Croquet Club is one of the largest in the County, we have five full size lawns. Our members are of all ages and both sexes, ranging from complete beginners to players of County standard.
