After completing a beginners' course, you will be invited to join the club at a reduced rate for the first year. Membership of the club allows you to book a court and play at a time to suit you. You may also wish to come to club afternoons and evenings, when you will be allocated a court and play a singles or doubles game. Additionally, for the first year, you may also use a club mallet free of charge. There are no extra fees.

Joining after a Beginners' Course £130
Full Standard Membership £200

After having joined, your annual subscription is due to be renewed in advance of the Annual General Meeting. This is normally held in early March, a few weeks before the season starts, however a discount is offered if paid before 31st December (approximately three months before the season starts).
*Near Country Member: A person living between 20 and 75 miles radius from the club may join as a near country member at the reduced fee. This privilege is extended, at the Committee's discretion, to people who live within a 75 miles radius from the club and are full Croquet Association members of another croquet club, and have nominated that club as their main club.
**Far Country Member: A person living over 75 miles radius from the club may join as a near country member at the reduced fee. This privilege is extended, at the Committee's discretion, to people who live over 75 miles radius from the club and are full Croquet Association members of another croquet club, and have nominated that club as their main club.
How to Book a Court
On the table in the clubhouse there is a book for court bookings. You may not book a court on a club afternoon or evening, and unless a match or tournament is taking place, all other times are available. You may book a court (or a half court up to 31st May) for a morning, afternoon, or evening session, simply by entering your name in the relevant place.
