A Welcome Awaits You
If you want to pit your skills and wits against a worthy opponent, or simply enjoy gentle excersie and fresh air in convivial company, Ipswich Croquet Club is the place to be.
At Ipswich Croquet Club the game is played by all ages and backgrounds, and we pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming to visitors and members alike whether absolute beginners or experienced experts.
So come along to one of our Saturday morning introductory sessions (see: ‘About Us - Opening Hours’) and give it a go. An introductory game will cost you nothing and there will be a friendly face to show you the game. We have the equipment; all you will need to bring is a pair of flat-soled shoes.
Ipswich Croquet Club was founded in 1908 and has been a part of Ipswich society for over 100 years. Our first home was on Portman Marshes (where the football ground is now). In 1930 it relocated to Christchurch Park, but increasing problems with parking and a lack of facilities led us to move to Fynn Valley in 2012.
Fynn Valley is now redeveloping the golf course, and we need more space to allow the croquet club to expand and improve its lawns to national competition standards. After much searching we have found a suitable site where we will build a brand new tailormade facility.
During recent times we are proud to have had regional, national and international champions among our members.
