Consultation on our Development Proposals

During the period 12th February to 30th March 2022 the club undertook a consultation exercise with local residents, park users and croquet club members on our proposals to develop the pavilion and lawns in Lammas Park.

Feedback on the proposals has been overwhelmingly positive, with 143 written responses received and 94% strongly in favour. Overall 82% of respondents were from an Ealing Borough postcode. You can read the full report on the results of the consultation here.

If you would like to know more about the proposals and register your interest, please view them on our Vision page, and use the feedback form to submit your views.

Welcome

Whether you’re an experienced player or new to the game – welcome!

Croquet is a fascinating game that combines skill and tactics, as well as a strong element of sociability, and can be played by all ages and sexes, on equal terms.

We welcome players of all standards and levels of experience. Our members range from international players to those who primarily enjoy the recreational and social side of the game.

Ealing Croquet Club is set in attractive surroundings in Lammas Park, with three flat, fast-paced lawns.

Croquet has been played there, albeit not continuously, since the early years of the twentieth century. You can read more about the formation of the club in our History of ECC on the News page.

Croquet is played primarily in the summer, but the club is open throughout the year (flood or blizzard permitting).

Croquet players are always keen to encourage those who are new to the game. You may find there’s a top player on an adjacent lawn who is happy to give you a few tips.

Getting Started

If you’d like to give croquet a go, just email secretary@ealingcroquet.org.

All you need to bring is a pair of flat-soled shoes – we’ll provide everything else.

About the game

There are two main variations of the game – Golf Croquet and Association Croquet. Golf Croquet games are quicker and involve more interaction, whilst Association Croquet games are generally longer, and involve a wider variety of different strokes.

You can find out more about Golf Croquet here and more about Association Croquet here.
