Our group plays golf croquet as this tends to be a more quicker & more sociable game than Association Croquet.

The group meets every other Tuesday or Thursday from 10am to 12noon during the summer months at Epsom Sports Club. Members are welcome to play on either or both days and may also attend sessions held at the same venue by Epsom U3A. The current cost is £3.00 person per session, payable on the day. During each session we have a short break for coffee and biscuits around 11.00am, and there is an additional charge of £0.50 to cover this.

In the summer, there is an annual competition between Horsley, Leatherhead, Fetcham and Epsom U3A croquet groups on the lawns at Polesden Lacey. In September, to round off our season, we have a competition against Epsom U3A at Epsom sports club. This last competition is followed by a superb ploughmanís lunch in the Sports Club pavilion. All members of the Fetcham Croquet Group are welcome to attend this event even if they prefer to watch rather than take part in the competition.

The Epsom Sports Club croquet section also organises sessions for their members who prefer to play association croquet and, with their prior consent, it is possible for Fetcham U3A members to attend these sessions.

We are a light hearted group, who generally donít take croquet too seriously, and laughter is often heard ringing across the lawns at Epsom.
