Welcome to The Croquet Academy
The Croquet Academy has been created as a centre of excellence for Croquet Tuition in the UK.
Since its inception 11 years ago, the Academy has been run by an enthusiastic group of highly qualified and experienced coaches and volunteers who give freely of their time to help players develop their skills and improve their game. The Team is supplemented by guest specialists, and Master Classes are presented by some of the World's top players.
Several of our coaches have received CA Coaching Awards including Daphne Gaitley – A CA Lifetime Coaching Award 2013, Frances Low – CA Coach of the Year 2012 and Examining Coach qualification, and Janet Hoptroff – CA Coach of the Year 2014.
Cliff Jones has been the Senior Coach for the last 10 years and has developed an excellent set of manuals to accompany the Academy’s Courses. You only have to look at his manuals to realize the time and devotion he has given to croquet coaching.
The Academy is located at Sussex County Croquet Club near Brighton, one of the world’s largest clubs. With 11 lawns, its size and facilities enable the Club to host major events and a wide selection of training courses.
A comprehensive programme of group courses has been created by The Croquet Academy for players of all levels, covering both Association and Golf Croquet. In addition, one to one coaching is available on request.
The Academy also trains Coaches and Referees, so that they can develop the game in their own region of the UK or overseas. Academy Coaches are sometimes able to conduct courses at locations throughout the UK.
