Balgreen Croquet Club is based at the Balgreen Bowling Centre in Edinburgh where we have the use of three of the redundant bowling greens. We welcome new members of all standards, from complete beginners to experienced players. Croquet is a game that is suitable for all, where men and women, old and young play on equal terms. Requiring the physical ability to execute shots combined with the mental ability to outwit your opponent, it is sometimes referred to as “snooker on grass”.
The club has all the equipment you need to play. You just need to wear some flat-soled shoes, eg trainers, in order to avoid damaging the lawns. Our main season runs from mid-April to mid-October, but we do keep one lawn open during the winter, so members can play all year round. If you’ve never played before, why not come along to our beginners’ coaching course in May. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
