About the group

The croquet group meets (weather permitting) from April until October, on Fridays at the Buckingham Cricket Club ground (opposite the fire station on Bourton Road).

No previous experience is required as the game we play, called golf croquet, is a simple game.

We have a number of mallets available for members’ use and sufficient court equipment for three courts. Games last approximately half an hour and two games can be played simultaneously on the same court, so we can play up to 24 games per session.

The rules for golf croquet are few and simple, so new players can take part without having to learn lots of rules. Two or four people play a game together, either as singles or pairs. The game is played using four coloured balls, each player having one or two balls. Each player strikes their ball in a prescribed order, so each player has a turn. The object of the game is to score points by having your ball pass through a hoop. There are six hoops, each hoop is targeted in order and the first ball through the hoop scores the point for that hoop. Only one ball is required to pass through a hoop, then the next hoop in the sequence is targeted.
