Welcome to our Nationally Recognized Croquet Club

 

Welcome to West River Wickets. Competitive croquet is a whole new ballgame. Forget your father's nine backyard hoops. Substitute six metal wickets with limited clearance either side of the ball. Introduce a strategy that is part golf, part pool and part chess. That in a nutshell is six-wicket croquet. Golf croquet is a simplified variant of the game. Together, they have made croquet one of the fastest growing sports in America. It is a fun sport for all ages -- for young and old, men and women and players of all capabilities.

 

If you think you have the temperament to step up to the wicket, we’ll arrange a simple introduction to the game.

 

Once the Covid-19 pandemic eases, West River Wickets will hold free introduction to croquet sessions for members and beginners on Saturdays (weather permitting).  Players receive basic instruction on using a mallet, striking the ball and making wickets. Games of golf croquet, one of the most popular forms of the game follow. Call Jay Graham 443 850-6520 jay@grahamlandarch.com . Bring your friends!
