History of Club

Evolution of Bishop Monkton Croquet Man

The Bishop Monkton Club was formed in 2008 using an area of land on the village playing fields.  In the first season two full size lawns were created, and some 25 members enrolled. The founder was Richard Field, currently club chairman.

A small clubhouse was added in 2009 funded by grants from the Croquet Association and The Dales Millennium Trust.

Currently membership is 67, which includes a thriving U3A Section.

The Village Section plays eight friendly matches and this year is taking part in the Yorkshire Shield competition for the first time.  The U3A Section has its own fixture list.
