Our club, supported by Leighton Linslade Town Council, is situated in Pages Park, Leighton Buzzard. We have three lawns next to our accessible clubhouse, part of the pavilion in the middle of Pages Park. In our clubhouse we have seating, toilet facilities, tea / coffee making facilities and storage for our equipment.
Croquet is the ideal sport for those who wish to take part in an outdoor activity requiring tactical thinking and (should you want it) a degree of competitiveness.
We are a friendly club, welcoming to anyone wishing to give it a try. We have several club mallets for players to use to have a go. Some of our members are qualified coaches who can take new members through every aspect of the game.
During social play at our club we generally play doubles and we mix up players using a simple peg system. This helps with the social aspect of our club as well as allowing inexperienced players to partner those more experienced helping to improve their game.
Our usual playing times are: -
Saturday 2 to 5
Sunday - 2 to 5
Tuesday - 2 to 5 (singles & handicap)
Wednesday - 10 onwards
Thursday - 10 onwards
Mondays and Fridays are frequently match days but check the DIARY to see if there is a match being played. If not, then general play is always open to members.
Our playing season starts at the end of March and goes on until the end of September. During our closed season, October to March, we have a social club which meets every Wednesday morning in our clubhouse, playing dominos, cards etc. The social club allows our members to keep in touch until the playing season starts again.
There are two distinct forms of croquet, Association Croquet and Golf Croquet - at Leighton Linslade we only play Golf Croquet.
Many members come to our club just for friendly social play whilst others, who take a more competitive approach, enter into club matches, friendlies with other local clubs, area leagues and national tournaments.
Our membership fee for 2024 is £90 for the year or if joining during the playing season (April to September), a reducing sliding fee applies.
