Welcome to the Hunstanton Croquet Club website.
We hope that you find all the information that you need on our website pages, but for more information and/or a chat, please pop along and see us on a club afternoon (Mondays and Wednesdays 1:30 – 4pm April – October). And why not check out our fledgling facebook and instagram accounts!
Hunstanton Croquet Club was founded in 1911. We have five lawns, car parking and a well-equipped club house. You will find us at the Southern end of the BCKLWN’s Recreation Ground, King’s Lynn Road, Hunstanton, Norfolk.
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 friendly 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). Our members are of all ages and both sexes, ranging from complete beginners to players of County standard.
NB: The club does not have a physical letter box, therefore, all correspondence and payments for “Hunstanton Croquet Club” should be sent to a named officer, as appropriate.
