Here at Ember, we actively encourage friends, family and local community groups to come and play. It is the way we usually encourage people to become members.
Here is some information about playing croquet to get you started. Follow the links below. Each link contains a one-page Word document that you can download and print:
- How to play Golf Croquet (copied from Croquet Association website)

If you decide to join Ember Croquet then we will endeavour to give you a big welcome and make sure you get the most from your experience with us. You will be introduced by a friendly face who will make sure this happens using the New Members Checklist (available in the Documents section of the members page)
While you are here… we rely totally on members to run all aspects of the club, from admin to lawn mowing, from painting the sheds to mending the lawn mower. If you have time, a particular skill or want to learn a new one, please have a look at the list below. Each activity has at least one coordinator (named) – of course, you don’t have to volunteer to coach! Not yet anyway!
