with Twilight play every first and third Wednesday in Spring/Summer from 6pm.

Several forms of the game are played but all essentially involve a race using a mallet to get
your ball through a number of hoops before your opponent does.

The North Shore Croquet Club is situated at 1 Wairoa Road, Devonport, just along from the Waitemata Golf Club. The grounds are surrounded by picturesque turn-of-the-century wooden villas, a truly lovely location. There are four full-sized lawns, lovingly - and expensively - maintained by the club's volunteer grounds man and his assistants. The clubrooms have had a rich and varied life and are primarily used by club members but are also available for hire.
