Darley Dale Croquet Club
The club meets in the Whitworth Park on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from about 1.30. Anyone can attend to find out about the game of Golf Croquet and have a free go. When the Club started in 2008 none of the present members had played the game before so it is not that hard to get enjoyment from the game. The members play in a friendly atmosphere and mainly do not take the game too seriously, although that option is available for those that want to move on to competitive inter- club play. The emphasis is it is a social club that plays croquet.
Membership costs £35 for unlimited play in the season or at £4 per session. The club also runs social events throughout the year.
