Tyneside Croquet Club was established in 1983 and is now based in Exhibition Park, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 4PZ. (Postal) For SAT-NAV use NE2 4AA  
Access to the park by motor vehicle is via the main gate at the corner of Claremont Road (B1318) and Park Terrace (see left).  (Using the What Three Words app, the entrance to Exhibition Park is at "view.same.press")
You must drive slowly within the park - not more than second gear. Proceed through the underpass and up the slope on the other side.  Turn right onto the main avenue.  
The lake and the brewery will be in front of you (see right).  Follow the road to the left of the lake.  When you reach the brewery, keep right and follow the road by the lakeside.  The Club's car park is in a compound to the left, ("care.cigar.apply" on What Three Words) at the rear of the clubhouse ("firms.test.expert").
With a membership of around 30, two courts (ex bowling greens) in Exhibition Park and a substantial pavilion situated in a major city park, we are in an enviable situation for a croquet club.
The Croquet Association (CA) www.croquet.org.uk  is croquet's governing body of which we are a member club and we are also affiliated to its regional federation, Croquet North (CN). www.croquetnorth.org.uk.
We play Association and Golf Croquet and have fixed allocated club days and evening sessions, hold coaching sessions and club championships. We have teams competing in the Croquet North leagues for both AC and GC. We also host 2 CA tournaments: the Midweek AC Handicap in June and Advanced ACWeekend in August.
We would consider any corporate visit to the club, when we could provide supervised games and light refreshments -
