Welcome to Dowlish Wake Croquet Club
Dowlish Wake nestles in the valley below Windwhistle, on the outskirts of Ilminster, South Somerset. The Croquet Club is situated on the Lawrence Kellett Playing Fields at the end of the village, where there are 3 full size lawns.
The Club has the use of a brand new Pavilion providing changing rooms and toilets, plus extensive kitchen facilities.
There are organised club days on Mondays and Thursdays, with full members having access to the lawns and equipment on most other occasions for self arranged play.
There are 3 levels of membership Full, Social, and Student/Country – click here to see details.
There are various opportunities for competitive play with in-house competitions, friendly matches with local clubs, and for the more experienced player there are three teams in the South West Federation League.
If you are interested in joining us, or want to learn more about the club – do contact us by clicking here and one of the Committee will be in touch as soon as possible.
Like most other clubs around the country we are not starting the season in the usual way until we get the all clear when the Coronavirus epidemic has passed. We have, however, started play in a protected and socially distant manner in accordance with rules established by the ruling body of croquet, the Croquet Association. Please visit their website for more information.
In the meantime, if you would like to find out more, please email the Club Secretary.
Keep well and keep safe!
