About the Oakland Croquet Club and Lawns

The Oakland Croquet Club plays on one of three lawn bowling greens located at Lake Merritt's Lakeside Park on Bellevue Avenue. The Oakland Croquet Club uses the East Lawn, which is the single lawn behind the Lawn Bowler's Clubhouse.

The club offers a free curriculum built around an introductory class held on the fourth Saturday of each month to instruct and encourage novice members. Reservations are needed to attend these free classes so if you wish to attend please contact the OCC and reserve a space.

BACK TO TOP

The club produces popular three-hour lawn parties at the Oakland lawns for up to 100 people, tailored to the client's requirements. These events can be scheduled for any time of year, but most are in the April-through-October "dry season." The game played is Golf Croquet doubles - fast-paced, interactive, and learnable in minutes. The club provides a complete program - all the equipment setups, instruction and demonstration games, and court referees at the ready to answer questions and offer advice. Cost of the lawn party is $15.00 a person. There is minimum charge of $150.

The most popular format features a multi-tiered elimination tournament, allowing winners to advance to more difficult games, while losers have a chance to play against peer-level opponents. Because so few people are familiar with the professional equipment and settings, everyone starts out at the same level as novices - which makes for an ideal mixer. And because croquet doubles calls for sophisticated partner communication and cooperation in plotting winning tactics and strategy, these events can be model team- building exercises. Croquet has been called "the ultimate social calisthenic." But the pace is easy, the tone is social, and the accent is on "serious fun." Flat shoes are required.

The enclosed lawns are a perfect setting for outdoor catering - typically a luncheon buffet or afternoon tea - with abundant courtside seating (Clients provide their own catering.)

With world-class equipment, a fast lawn, and an unequaled coach-to-player ratio, these lawn parties for croquet novices rival the offerings of the West's best croquet resorts. The club can also design a croquet program for an offsite venue of your own choosing.
