We can arrange croquet taster sessions on our lawns for outside groups and organisations, e.g. WI groups and Round Table. Taster sessions are normally held on Monday or Wednesday evenings from 6.30 to 8.30pm, between mid-May and mid-August. The charge for a two-hour session is £5.00 per person, with a minimum charge of £50.00 (i.e. 10 people). We may be able to offer a buffet after the croquet at around £6 per person – or instead you could try the Halfway House, Donisthorpe (5 minutes’ drive from the club) for food.
Update 28/03/21: Taster bookings for 2021 have been fairly slow up to now, as people wait to see how the Covid situation unfolds. We hope to be able to run taster sessions from May 17th onwards, though the group sizes may initially need to be restricted to 12 people. Unfortunately we will be unable to provide buffets this year.
Priority for 2021 taster sessions will be given to groups which had taster sessions cancelled in 2020, and we will be writing to these groups in April if we haven’t heard from them by then. Any other groups are welcome to get in touch before then, and we will place you on a waiting list, though we may not be able to fit you in until 2022.
If you would like to book a croquet taster session for your group, please contact Arthur Rowe (tel. 01332 774296).
