Learn to Play

The Canberra Croquet Club conducts introductory coaching lessons when appropriate numbers of people are interested.

Lessons in Golf Croquet through the U3A classes are also held once or twice a year.

The format for the lessons is four 2-hour lessons, with one coach to 2-6 students. The lessons cover an Introduction to both Golf Croquet and Association Croquet.

Lesson Plan

Further Resources: Reading books on Croquet is an excellent way to gain insight into what you are learning, and to get extra knowledge. Club members have access to the Club's library, containing many books, videos and DVDs. Check out Resources on this website.

Practice: While reading is useful, the best way to improve is to practice. We encourage you to practice between lessons. Your Coach may be able to arrange for a Club member to be present at suitable times to allow you to come along and practice.

Application for Lessons

The cost is $50. The course fee will be deducted from your membership fees if you join the Club.

Application Form for Lessons: When you have confirmation of lessons being held, and your desire to attend, you are invited to complete the application form. It can be downloaded (Word or PDF format) or obtained by mailing Coaching Coordinator. It may be returned by post or email.

Equipment: The CCC provides all the equipment, and has a range of mallets that can be borrowed. The only dress stipulation is that you wear flat-soled shoes. Shorts or slacks are preferred since the modern method is to play centre-style, swinging the mallet between the legs.

Contact the Coaching Coordinator for further information, or to sign up for lessons.
