Think Croquet – Think Friends, Fun, Sport, Strategy, Skill and a lot more. If you are looking for a new outdoor sport – one that’s both competitive and social – at a Club with some of the best facilities in the area, look no further than Camerton & Peasedown Croquet Club

Croquet is a sport for everyone and it’s good for your health. Women and men play on equal terms, skill and tactics are the name of the game (as well as a degree of luck!) and age is no barrier.

Croquet is a sport that, even after a short introduction, you’ll be able to enjoy with others.

Why Play Croquet?

There are two principal forms of the game – Association and Golf.

Association Croquet is a game of complex strategy and high levels of skill, and is similar in many ways to games like snooker or pool.

Golf Croquet is quick to learn and very sociable, requiring accuracy and tactics to master.

Both forms of the game may be played as singles or doubles and many people enjoy playing both, as skills learned in one form of the game may be applied to the other.

Croquet’s effective handicap system recognises smart thinking as much as physical skill, so everyone has a good chance of winning.

As with any game, the best players probably start young, but many take it up after retiring from more energetic pursuits. It can be as skilful as you want it to be – advanced players can take it very seriously, but most club members probably see it as a relaxing and friendly way of passing an afternoon.

About the club

The club was formed in 2012, and is based in Peasedown St John near Bath.

We play throughout the year with the main season running from April to September, and membership is open to people of any age. New recruits are always welcome, and all members have the use of our equipment as well as access to coaching from our many more experienced players.

For both formats of the game, there are internal events and regional and national leagues and tournaments for those who wish to play competitively. These cater for all levels of player from beginner to expert.
