Welcome to Maldon Croquet Club

We  pride ourselves on being a friendly, fun-loving group of people.

We play Golf Croquet which is a friendly game combining ball skills as well as tactics. It’s relatively easy to understand, and fun to play. We welcome players of all ages and experience, from absolute beginners to National Champions.

The club was founded in 2011 with just four members, playing at Drapers Farm Sports and Social Club in HeybridgeFrom 2014 until 2022 we played at Forrester Park Golf ClubOur new home is The Keith Bigden Memorial Ground in Hatfield Peverel and we are now an affiliated Club to Hatfield Peverel Bowling Club, with exclusive use of the outdoor playing area. 

At present we have over sixty members, who have the opportunity to play at their own level, either socially or competitively. We have several roll-up sessions a week, which are relaxed, and allow members and guests to meet up.

You are welcome to join us at one of these sessions if you would like to try your hand at playing the game.  We also welcome spectators so if you would prefer to watch and learn, just come along on these days.

We run coaching sessions and internal competitions throughout the season, as well as hosting events for local organisations. Why not book an event for you and your friends to experience the wonderful game of croquet? 

Our social events include an end of season event in September including a BBQ, a Presentation Evening and Dinner later in the year, and monthly lunch get-togethers over the winter. 

Why not join us? 

Our season runs from April to October, and membership is open to people of any age. New recruits are always welcome and we do not have a waiting list for new members.   

All members have the use of our equipment as well as access to coaching from our more experienced players.  

As well as extensive opportunities for social play, there are internal events and regional and national leagues and tournaments for those who wish to play competitively. These cater to all levels of players from beginner to expert. 

Our ethos is that all members should enjoy their croquet, whatever the level.
