Why Join Tyneside Croquet Club
and Play Croquet?
GETS YOU OUT IN THE OPEN AIR
Both codes of the game involve a fair amount of walking; Association Croquet more than Golf Croquet.
WOMEN PLAY ON AN EQUAL FOOTING WITH MEN
It's a game of skill and strategy rather than brute strength
Club, Inter-club, National and International.
MAKE NEW FRIENDS
If competitive play isn't your thing, it can be played socially as well
AN INTERESTING MIX OF PHYSICAL ABILITY AND STRATEGY
Association Croquet, especially, requires a bit of thought as well as the ability to play the required shot - some have likened it to a cross between chess and billiards played outdoors
CROQUET IS A FAIR CONTEST
There is a handicap system which allows a beginner to play against an expert with a fair chance of success. It also allows the beginner to observe and learn from the technique and tactics of better players.
CAN BE PLAYED BY ALL AGES
Our oldest member is still
playing in his 90s.
THERE'S A BREWERY NEXT TO OUR CROQUET LAWNS!
