Welcome to Takapuna Croquet
Your place for a clever game with great people
If you haven’t experienced croquet yet - you don’t know what you’re missing. Playing croquet brings you fun and friendship wrapped up in an intriguing game that’s great for most ages, from beginners to hard out contenders and everyone in between. Essentially croquet is a sport where you and your partner race your opponents to be the first to whack your ball through a series of six hoops (played twice). There are definitely rules but they are easiest to learn as you play with experienced players.
You can discover croquet at Takapuna by:
- Playing a game with our members
- Hosting your next corporate team event around a croquet match
- Or celebrating your special occasions with a game at the club
Takapuna Croquet offers two popular ways to play:
Golf Croquet is a simple form of croquet where most people start and is a firm favorite because it’s continuous playing that is sociable, interactive and easy to learn.
Association Croquet also has many fans. It’s based on break play (think snooker, billiards and pool) which can mean that one player can spend a lot of time sitting down, unable to do anything to influence or interrupt the striker's progress.
Now you know a bit about the game you must be itching to come along and try croquet for yourself. All you need is to wear comfortable clothes and your soft soled shoes.
Lots of people have been introduced to croquet through different kinds of events, like basing your celebration for a special occasion around a croquet game, or by playing in a corporate event.
