History of the club

Who are we?

  • The Club was established in 2012, moving from its previous location in Lansdown, Bath
  • Peasedown Cricket Club had a spare football pitch. After levelling, seeding and waiting (!), the Croquet Club was born,
  • We have four full-sized lawns with beautiful views over the Somerset countryside
  • We share the grounds of Peasedown Cricket Club
  • In 2016 we joint-hosted, with Bath CC, the Tier 2 finals of the Golf Croquet World Team Championships. The national teams of Australia, the Czech-Moravian Republic, Germany Latvia, Scotland, Spain and Switzerland descended on the club for a week’s intense competition, eventually won by Australia, playing Spain in the final.
