Don't worry if you've not tried croquet before. Even an absolute beginner can be playing within a few minutes. You should find it easy to master some of the skills of Golf Croquet, and you can be up and running very quickly. We provide all the equipment you'll need, so please get in touch and we can arrange a time when there's someone around to show you what to do. There's no charge for a taster session, so come along and see if croquet is the game for you.

The ideal time for having a go is on Saturday or Sunday afternoon.  There should be someone around between 2pm and 5pm.  If that's not easy for you, contact us and we can sort out an evening or a daytime get-together.

High-heeled shoes can damage grass, so bring some flat-soled shoes, such as trainers. There's no need for any other special clothing, and there are no fashion restrictions for normal club play; but ladies may find trousers more comfortable to play in than tight-fitting skirts.

Our head coach, James Hawkins, has led players from novice up to national level. He trains coaches for the Croquet Association and is the author of Complete Croquet, one of the definitive books on how to play. He can help you get the most out of the game, no matter what your current level of experience is.

If you have competitive ambitions, or you've played before, you may choose to advance directly from Golf Croquet to Association Croquet. The club is a member of the Croquet Association and the North West Federation of Croquet Clubs, and you'll be able to play team matches against other clubs throughout the region, as well as tournaments around the country.

Whether you're already serious about swinging a mallet or just want to have a chat, send us a message, or wander along to the club. We're in Sefton Park in Aigburth, and we're around throughout the summer, from late March until October.
