National Croquet Day celebrates this interesting and addictive game that is increasing in popularity. Most people know Croquet is a sport where you hit a ball through a series of hoops with a long mallet. However, not a lot of people know it needs skill and tactics rather than brute strength, so men and women, young and old, play on equal terms using an effective handicapping system that allows beginners to give much better players the scare of their lives.
National Croquet Day is our chance to show how competitive Croquet really is! How Golf Croquet can be an exciting game with spectacular hoop shots and distant ball clearances. Whilst Association Croquet offers opportunities for many skilful shots and break building tactics.
Many people are surprised to find the UK has a friendly and vibrant croquet scene with several world champions and world top-10 players. Beginners discover Croquet is enjoyable and rewarding at all skill levels from beginner to advanced, and can be played to a high standard even by those not as agile as they were! Croquet Clubs host local and national tournaments from April through October, with international competitions held regularly. It has been known for complete beginners to represent their country within three years of picking up the game!
