I had such a fun time visiting the National Croquet Center. What a hidden gem in a busy town. I thoroughly enjoyed the free clinic/lesson. I now have a new respect for a historic and fun game.

We were there for a fundraiser. The setting is pretty and the food was good. They had friendly and professional coaches to teach people how to play and provide advice on strategy and shots. It was fun for all ages!

You don't have to have a lesson but it really helps understand strategy. I'm not sure about reservations, best to call and ask.
