Free lesson at the Croquet center was a lot of fun. I took 3 nieces, the only drawback was by youngest niece (age 10) is quite small. Croquet mallet didn't quite fit. I'd advise older children only. Drink plenty of water especially in the summer. Had a great time.

The facility is wonderful, and offers great food and a walk into another world. But where the real fun rests is within the croquet! You will laugh like crazy, get a little competitive and find yourself anxious to do it again!

Not your backyard croquet. Manicured putting green quality fields make this a game of skill and strategy. Mostly members only, bit open play on selected days. Perfect outdoor entertainment for groups of 4 or more. Nostalgia and competitive fun in a sophisticated setting. Teens and above. Food and adult drinks are available - a bit pricy.

The croquet center is a beautiful place. The grounds & the gardens are well maintained. The club house was elegant with a large wraparound porch. The staff was very friendly & helpful. Every day they served us a nice breakfast & a wonderful lunch. The lunch menu had three very nice choices. I will return!! We went for a class.... More

My friend and I meet up in WPB yearly and gave this a try. Free lessons for beginners on Saturday mornings at 10am. Taught by members who were knowledgeable and very nice and fun. Met some other great people to play with as well. Easy to find, and a very nice facility. The lawns were well taken care of. You... More

Great veranda which is close to the courts. The place really needs a nice bar. Indoors and outdoors. It would be a great add to the place. What club doesn't have a bar?

A group of 20 of us had a lovely lunch on the Veranda followed by a private lesson and croquet competition. Everyone had a blast! The facility is beautiful and the staff was excellent - very friendly and eager to share their passion for croquet with us novices. I think they converted most of us to this fun sport! I... More

M y sister and I just went there for lunch. We sat on the veranda which overlooks the playing field. It was a beautiful day so the setting was perfect. The inside of the building is very "Tommy Bahama" in style, which I love. The food is good, but it is a mystery to me that very few people are... More

I went to the National Croquet Center for a free lesson one Saturday, then ended up joining the summer league! Lots of us were beginners, but we were made to feel welcome and taught to love the sport. I ended up joining the club, and though someone said it was a sport for the wealthy, really almost anyone can afford... More
