The last twenty years has seen international teams, world class
tournaments and the national rankings dominated by players who started
playing as teenagers.
It is our ambition that our thriving junior section will produce
players to compete at this high standard: we are well on our way
Juniors are first introduced to Golf Croquet to learn and practice
the basics of hitting the ball straight and running hoops. Once
these essentials have been mastered, they progress rapidly to Association
Croquet, a game in which strategy becomes as important as playing
Once a basic competence is achieved, junior players are encouraged
to enter Club tournaments. Some of our present junior members have
reached the finals of some events.
One of our juniors, joined the Club aged
nine in 2001 and in his first year won the Junior
Tournament. He progressed by winning the Club golf doubles competitions
two years running and in 2008 winning four of the Club competitions
beating seasoned players.
In 2008 he was invited to play in the Inter Counties Golf Tournament
and in the All England Golf Croquet Championship finished as runner
In 2009 he represented the UK in the under 21 World Championship in Cairo
reaching the quarter finals.
In 2010 he was invited to play in the National Golf Singles Championship
- the Ascot Cup - and won this prestigious tournament.
One Junior started playing croquet
8 years ago following a visit to the Club with the Cubs. He was
hooked and started attending the Junior Coaching sessions on Saturday
mornings. He started by learning Golf Croquet but soon found out
about Association Croquet and has won two Club association competitions
with adult partners and two on his own. His younger brother,
desperately waited for his 10th birthday so that he could follow
in his brother's footsteps.
Another of our star Juniors has won many Club competitions in both Association
and Golf. He has won the All England Handicap Golf Singles Championships (twice)
and played in the 2013 World Golf Championship in Cairo.
The junior section meets, at the Club, for coaching from coaches
that are CRB checked on
Tuesday afternoons from 3.45pm. Our current membership is 10,
covering an age range from 9-18 years. More juniors, both
boys and girls are welcome.
