Membership

Membership of the club allows you to book a court without any additional fees.

After completing a beginners' course, you will be invited to join the club at a reduced rate for the first year.

You may also wish to come to club afternoons and/or evenings, at which players are matched up and allocated a court to 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.

Subscription Fees

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 15 and 75 miles by road 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 15 miles by road 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 by road from the club may join as a far country member at the reduced fee. This privilege is extended, at the Committee's discretion, to people who live between 15 and 75 miles by road from the club and are full Croquet Association members of another croquet club, and have nominated that club as their main club.
