and welcome to the Ramsgate Croquet Club web site. Here you can find out details of The Club's history and its activities.

A Brief History

The Club was founded by Dennis and Eileen Shaw in 1983 at the Montefiore Sports ground.

In 1987 the Club was offered the old tennis courts and putting green site on the Royal Esplanade in Ramsgate by Thanet District Council. Since then,the lawns have been relaid, an irrigation system installed and are now considered to be amongst the best in the country.

Club members play both Golf Croquet and Association Croquet.[see About Croquet].
For both games the Club has nationally qualified coaches and tuition is FREE as is the use of all equipment. It is a game which can be played by all ages - our youngest member [see Juniors] is nine and the oldest ninety one! A handicap system ensures that players at all levels can compete sensibly against each other.

The Club will be open for its 2016 Season in April with the President's Day on the 23rd April

Club days are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays throughout the season.

Members of the public are welcome at any time the courts are available and coaching for newcomers is held on Thursday afternoons or at another time by arrangement.

 

What do you need to start?
Just a pair of flat-bottomed shoes. The Club can provide a mallet for you to use. No need to join the Club immediately - come along and find out more about the game.
