This is the website of the North West Federation of Croquet Clubs. Croquet is one of the fastest growing minority sports which can be played for fun, relaxation and fitness or played very seriously with incredibly high levels of skill in international tournaments. The Federation covers a large geographical including Cumbria, Lancashire, Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man. There are about 19 clubs in the Federation, some are still in the developmental stage whilst others have been established over 100 years and it is estimated that the regional membership is about 1000 people. Whilst many members play Croquet for relaxation and meeting friends, others play competitively in the many league teams or regional tournaments. The region is also very fortunate to have many excellent players who compete at the highest national and international level. The Federation organises many coaching courses to nurture the talent in the region. This website is designed to provide an up to date news service of croquet activities within the Federation as well as developing an historical archive of the game in the region. All clubs welcome new members and provide tuition with all equipment provided. Beginners courses are a regular feature at most clubs, as are ‘Come and Try’ events and many social activities.
