Caren Sawyer shows how to do a split shot
The Pasadena Croquet Club offers free public lessons, on Saturday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Please contact us so we can add you to our e-mail list that we use to notify you. If you are a USCA member, we welcome you to join us, but please send us an e-mail at least three days in advance so we can make sure to host you well.
Free public lessons take approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. Within 15 minutes, we can show you how to swing the mallet, put your ball through the wickets, and explain the rules. The rest of the time you can play games, either doubles mixed with experienced players or singles/doubles with other new players. You can stay longer and play more if you like.
Be careful, the more you play, the greater the odds that you will get hooked on croquet!
Fall graduating class with instructors
In the Spring and Fall of each year, we hold four-week Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced croquet classes.
The four week class costs just $20 ($40 for non-PCC Club members). Each session lasts about an hour, and you will learn one new skill shot and increasingly more sophisticated strategy. After class, stick around and play pick-up doubles games, using the skills and strategy you just learned!
We limit the classes to just eight people so we can give each player more individualized attention. So don't delay in signing up!
