Welcome to Bakewell Croquet Club

Bakewell Croquet Club continues to be increasingly successful. We have completed our nineteenth season, 2024 being our twentieth year of play. Our emphasis is on the informal fun side of the game, so we tend to play mostly Golf Croquet during our club sessions. This type of croquet has fairly simple rules, is more interactive than Association Croquet and, therefore, arguably more sociable.  Some of our more experienced players are having tuition and learning the game of Association Croquet, coached by an experienced club member.  Association Croquet is available and is generally played on the Thursday evening session.

For a more detailed description of each type of Croquet see the Croquet England site.

We have two full sized lawns, situated at Bakewell Recreation Ground in front of the Cricket Pavilion, which can be seen on our map.

Croquet is a game of skill, artistry, cunning, subtlety, accuracy and even psychology, but especially one of fun.

We are a Member of Croquet England and the Federation of East Midlands Croquet Clubs.
