<<< Ready for Play on 1 April Keeping our (Social) Distance!
Dunston Croquet Club in Lincolnshire started in 2019 playing on lawns shared with Dunston Bowls Club at Dunston Playing Field, off The Green, Dunston, Lincoln LN4 2HE.
COVID-19 and Playing Croquet
We started playing again on Thursday 1 April 2021, with precautions to follow the latest Covid-19 rules.
Croquet is an ideal form of sport and exercise which can be played while maintaining social distancing. We are able to accept new players, so if you are interested in joining, please contact us.
If you have never picked up a croquet mallet before, do not feel that you cannot join the Club. Many members start with no knowledge of the game, so we give tuition. Croquet combines mental and physical skills. Strategy is as important as skill in hitting the ball where you want it to go. As the Croquet Association says: "Croquet is a challenging and intriguing sport requiring tactical ability, judgment and skill rather than strength and fast reflexes". It is also one of the few sports where men & women and young & old can compete equally in a social yet competitive environment. No special kit is required, but please wear flat shoes to protect the lawn. Look at the short video below.
