Welcome to the Ramsgate Croquet Club web site. Here you can find
out details of the Club's history and its activities.
The Club was founded by Dennis and Eileen Shaw in 1983 at the Montefoire
In 1987 the Club was offered the old tennis court and putting green site
on the Royal Esplanade in Ramsgate by Thanet District Council.
Since then the lawns have been relaid and are now considered amongst
the best in the country.
Club members play both Golf Croquet and Association Croquet.
The Club will be open for its 2014 season in late April with the
Presidents Day on the 27th April.
Club days are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday throughout the season.
Members of the public are welcome at any time if the courts are available
and coaching for newcomers is held on Thursday afternoons or at another time
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 is nine and the eldest
ninety one! A handicap system ensures that players at all levels can
sensibly compete against each other.
For more details see our 'Contact' page.
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 about the game.
