We are always pleased to welcome new members to the Club. Prospective members are invited to come along and have lessons before deciding to join. The lessons include the basic skills required to enjoy a game of croquet.
Annual fees are $280.00 including the TCA/ACA affiliation fee, due 1st January each year. There is an initial $20 joining fee and people who join later in the year pay a pro-rata subscription.
Members pay $5 for each day of any week in which they play or practise on the courts, with a maximum payment of $10.00 a week. These fees entitle them to tea and/or coffee.
A full member of another Tasmanian Croquet Club may join Kingston Croquet Club as an associate member. The subscription is equal to half that for a full member. Associate members are entitled to normal privileges except they may not vote at General Meetings nor play in any Club Championship.
Introductory coaching is available as mentioned above but learners are encouraged to practise between lessons.
Club coaches are always willing to provide individual or group coaching on request. On occasions regular formal sessions are conducted.
Flat soled shoes are required at all times.
