Croquet has been a Waterville Valley tradition since 1881. The 2018 season is underway on Sunday afternoons through Labor Day weekend.
The croquet court is located at the foot of Greeley Hill Road – adjacent to the tennis courts and across the street from the golf course – and offers exceptional mountain views.
A little bit of history: the croquet court was constructed atop the old community swimming pool.
The WVAIA – Waterville Valley’s outdoor club – has sponsored and hosted croquet for as long as I can remember.
The course is set-up by 2:45 p.m. for practices and the games begin promptly at 3 p.m. and end at 5 p.m. All are invited to participate. You don’t need to bring any equipment and attire is casual (although everyone wears traditional whites for the Labor Day championship tournament).
If you wish, bring a beverage of your choice for personal use and a snack to share.
