The Croquet Club shares superb facilities with cricket and tennis as part of the Sidmouth Fortfield Sports Complex. Croquet was played in Victorian Sidmouth as early as 1900 as part of the original Sidmouth Cricket, Tennis, Croquet & Hockey Club. Members enjoy full clubhouse facilities with bar and in-house catering. The club has a friendly atmosphere and an ongoing social life including events such as dinners, demonstrations, illustrated talks, fun events, wine and buffet evenings and other activities. After a croquet session, it is good to be able to watch a top-class game of cricket over a well-earned drink! As well as hosting National Tournaments, the Croquet club holds its own competitions and is a member of the South West Federation League, competing at beginners, intermediate and advanced levels
