Bowdon is known for the quality of its lawns. To keep the standard high it is essential that EVERYBODY adheres to the Lawn Rota, the intention of which is to even out the usage of the lawns. Details can be found on the notice board by the front door.
Welcome to Bowdon Croquet Club 2015...

...where croquet is played on most days of the year.

We are a thriving active club and welcome new members (see New Members section for an application form or just come and visit).

The club has room for four superb full size lawns maintained to a high standard providing first class playing facilities to all members.

The 2015 croquet season runs from March until October when three full size lawns and two short lawns are laid out.
Limited play is permitted during the winter months.

Bowdon hosts several Croquet Association tournaments each year.
In 2015 these are:

The May Handicap Weekend
The June Advanced Weekend
The Northern Week (July)
The North of England Championship (August)
The September 'B' level Tournament
