Helderberg Village Croquet Club is situated within Helderberg Village, a life-style village for the over 50’s, nestled between Somerset West and the Stellenbosch winelands. Our courts are recognised to be of a high standard and in 2008 we co-hosted the World Championships. Our membership is continuously growing each year and we welcome players from the surrounding areas. Many ‘swallows’ also love to join us in the summer months. Beginners are offered one-on-one instruction by our more experienced members.
Both social and serious competition players feel very much at home in the club. We have a very happy and enthusiastic membership with many tournaments being offered to suit all levels of players. Most of our members are Golf Croquet players although we do have some Association players. Whilst we strictly comply with the S.A.C.A. Tournament Handicap Regulations, the overwhelming social nature of our membership means that we have introduced a very unique handicapping system for our internal competitions which enables even our ‘beginners’ to confidently enjoy their games. The club has spare mallets available, free of charge, for use by visitors / beginners to determine what size and weight suits them best. Every year we hold an annual prizegiving function. Below are some photos of a few of our prize winners for 2015.
Our players meet 5 times a week on Monday and Friday afternoons, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings for Golf Croquet and on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons for Association Croquet. On the last Sunday of the month we have a social afternoon when all are welcome; a few games are played followed by drinks, snacks and much chat and laughter!
Our annual fees for both residents and non-residents are reasonable and no playing fees are charged for members. For more information on fees please contact the Helderberg Village Croquet Secretary.
