The National Croquet Center, one of the largest croquet-dedicated facilities in the world, houses numerous croquet lawns upon 10 acres of lush greenery and grass. Solo players can explore their mallet skills with a one-month membership to partake in unlimited lawn play, equipment rental, skill clinics, and access to pink flamingoes for Alice in Wonderland reenactments. Sporting groups of four can indulge their croquet cravings with a lawn party hosted on the center’s meticulously maintained landscape. Each player is outfitted with the proper accouterments and given basic instruction before taking to the lawn to prove their swing superiority without getting turf upon one’s cravat.

About National Croquet Center
The National Croquet Center invites visitors to take in relaxing bouts of competitive croquet, dine with friends and family, or celebrate weddings and special events amid the elegant lawns and clubhouses. From the time French peasants began whacking wooden balls with simple mallets in the game's early days, to the modern matches of also whacking wooden balls with simple mallets, croquet has been enjoyed across all ages and social classes. Rather than hosting informal matches on bumpy patches of backyard, the National Croquet Center maintains professional playing grounds, with laser-level 105'x84' putting grounds, a pro shop, and a stately Caribbean-style clubhouse. Wedding guests dance and celebrate in candlelit dining rooms and verdant lawns, while players hungry from hours of rolling balls through wickets gather at the Croquet Grille for high-class luncheons.
