Welcome to our Website

We are a small, friendly local club offering the opportunity to take part in the game of CROQUET in a relaxed and sociable atmosphere in the heart of Oxfordshire.

We are based at Wantage Cricket Ground in Charlton Village Road. We enjoy play on two lawns set in the outfield of the cricket ground and are also able to use the facilities of the Club’s Pavilion as our members are also Social Members of the Cricket Club.

The game is easily learned yet you can spend a long time perfecting the various techniques required for really high standards of play. All this among a sociable membership who enjoy an element of competitiveness and some gentle exercise in the fresh air.

We welcome beginners of all ages and offer free tuition and use of the club equipment (mallets,hoops and balls)to all members. Alternatively, personal equipment can be purchased from local Sports Shops or from the Croquet Association, where practicing before purchase is encouraged. No special clothing is needed other than flat soled shoes. When playing in matches with other clubs then white clothing is the accepted dress code.
