Courts can now be booked in 30 minute increments for Association Croquet, Golf Croquet, or any other forms of the game.
It should be noted that certain times are blocked out for tournaments, in-house competitions, club days, external bookings and court maintenance.
The usual dedicated weekly allocations are as follows:
*** NB Please note that these sessions are suspended during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. ***
Monday Afternoon – Golf Croquet
Thursday (All day) – Association and Golf Croquet (2 lawns for each)
Sunday Afternoon – Croquet Roll-Up: Guests of Members play for free
To ensure that the new on-line booking system works smoothly, will all members kindly note and action the following:
1. If, for any reason, you are unable to play on a court that you have booked, please cancel it so that others may use it. Since this can be done on line it shouldn’t prove too difficult.
2. Golf Croquet and Association Croquet should not be played on the same court. To ensure that your booking is correctly identified, please make the correct selection from the drop-down box on the booking page.
3. Bookings should not be made more than 4 weeks ahead. Exceptions are CA events, tournaments and in-house matches where, because of unusual circumstances (e.g. one player taking very long holidays), there is no other choice.
The lawns are usually cut early Tuesday and Friday mornings. This activity is supposed to be completed by 9.30 pm.
