U3A Croquet Section

Why croquet?

Croquet is a very enjoyable game for people in the U3A.  We play informally and the focus is on enjoyment rather than winning!

Who can play?

Anybody eligible to join the U3A.  There is no differentiation between the sexes.


At Down Grange (alongside the Walled Garden, up the hill from the Toby Carvery)


At the moment we can only play from April to September because the present lawn is unsuitable in winter.

How many people are involved?

At the moment there are about 50 people in the U3A Croquet Section. With only one lawn we are unable to accommodate very many more.


You need to join the U3A (£25/year) which gives access to all their other activities.  Each session of croquet then costs 50p per person.
