Looking for something unique to do tomorrow afternoon? Stop by the great lawn at 2 pm and watch a game of Giant Croquet!
This spontaneous game on the great lawn is organized by croquet aficionado, Bob Alman, who will be bringing his giant croquet set which will accommodate up to 24 players.
“I personally enjoy producing this game in public spaces” said Mr. Alman “and there’s no more public space than this that I know of that is also ideally workable for the game.”
West Palm Beach is home to the very unique National Croquet Club – the world’s largest dedicated croquet facility, with the finest lawns spanning four acres and a 19,000 square foot clubhouse designed in the Florida Keys style. Constructed in 2002, the Center is the best kept secret in West Palm Beach for groups hosting 20 to 600 guests. The nineteen full-sized lawns can accommodate hundreds of players at any one time. Equipped with a full-sized kitchen and a full bar, our facility is a perfect destination for any event.
If you don’t know how to play croquet, free Golf Croquet lessons are offered at the Croquet Club every Saturday morning at 10:00 am to the public. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. This is a great introduction to croquet: Learn how to hit the ball, score wickets, learn strategy and plot your next move! Bring your friends for a morning of croquet and then stay for lunch at the Croquet Grille.
