Welcome to Guildford and Godalming Croquet Club

Whether you’re a total beginner, seasoned tournament player or have fond memories of playing family garden croquet, we will be delighted to welcome you to our club.

If you would like to give it a try we are holding a free open afternoon on Sunday 19th May 2 to 5 pm and run Pay and Play sessions for £10 per person on Wednesday evenings from 5.30.

Croquet is an exciting game which is both stimulating and competitive, while being sociable, affordable and fun!

Forget the image of a game played on the vicarage lawn…..modern croquet is croquet for all, with something for everyone.

This previously low profile sport is ideal in the current situation, where the need to maintain social distancing is so important. It can be played by people of all ages and genders, with differing levels of fitness and skill (thanks to a handicap system). There is no need for specialist equipment as we will lend you all you need. Just wear a pair of flat soled shoes!

The game is essentially quite simple.

Learn to play Golf Croquet, a faster paced and sociable game, where you’ll soon make friends and can pick up the basics in just 10 minutes. Or, should you prefer, play Association Croquet – more akin to playing snooker – fascinating and full of subtleties and complexities, pleasures and challenges.
