Bury is the natural home for Croquet ( well the balls do spell it's name out, what further proof is needed!).
So welcome to Bury Croquet Club, a growing friendly club based in the town. We now have direct contol of five
lawns. We take part in the North West Federation Leagues and now field Eight teams to compete in all forms of croquet
disciplines & levels.
We've just finished our twenty seventh season. From our nomadic fledgling start on various bits of grass out and about
around Bury, passing through our old home in the centre of the Athletic Track to now needing the entire borough - well
two separate parks within it!
At Coronation Park (HQ) we have two courts, car parking and a well-equipped club house whilst over in Whitehead Park
we offer three courts with another, larger club house and plenty of car space.
In the intervening years our membership and confidence has continued to increase, as has our playing strength
(check out our results - two team titles last year & various members have collected National CA awards in each of the
last 14 years!), come and join us and add to our diversity - you never know what you might help us and yourself achieve.
Our 'Home'...and centre of operations for our club
Many league matches and *fun* events are held here each season along with most coaching & practice
Come along and discover why our club keeps growing.....
Our new Tournament venue of choice.
We now play and practice here too, after spending the last 24mths leveling & expanding the
playing area in yet another unkempt & unloved abandoned park.
Internationals, Nationals & major 'A' Class events have been hosted by us here since 2003, at the facility
built for the Manchester Commonwealth Games. Present turf condition means we currently have no fixtures planned for this
former great venue.

How much does it Cost to be a member? - Less than you would think, unlimited play (& Coaching) all season for less than a
single day's play at golf!
