​Welcome to Sydenham Croquet Club 


We are a small, sociable club, and play Golf Croquet, from April to  September,  inclusive. Beginners can quickly learn and play this form of croquet. 


Golf croquet is played by women and men of all ages. It involves skill and tactics and is great fun to play. On average, a game of golf croquet takes only around 40 minutes, which leaves you with ample time to socialise. 

We are moving to the former bowling green in  Mayow Park, Sydenham, SE26 4JA, with the usual sessions (see below) starting on Wednesday, 4th May.

Our friendly members will be happy to introduce you to this fascinating game. Please contact us to try one of our free taster sessions.

No experience needed, just come in flat shoes as we supply the necessary equipment (including mallets). We look forward to seeing you on the lawn!

As a full member of  The Croquet Association we have insurance for our club and through membership of the South-East Croquet Federation we can play matches in a league. Both organisations provide helpful advice with various croquet matters. 


We also arrange friendly matches with local clubs. Check Gallery & Events for photos and future events.

NEWS: We played a friendly match at Dulwich Croquet club on Friday, 6th May, where we enjoyed sunshine and afternoon tea.  Games were timed, so many were closer than the result of Dulwich 7 Sydenham 4 suggests. Our thanks to Dulwich for hosting the event. 

​Club sessions

Between April and September, we usually play from 2 pm on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. Lawn availability will vary due to weather and other commitments on the lawn. Members exchange information on sessions of play on the club’s WhatsApp group and by email.
