Members of the Hayes Presidential Center Croquet Club strike a pose in front of the President's home.
Get into the swing with Croquet!

Croquet is back in vogue. Across the country croquet clubs are being formed in neighborhoods, fitness facilities, and golf courses. The Hayes Presidential Center is on the cutting edge of the wave. Its Hayes Presidential Center Croquet Club enters its third year in 2012 . The club, which is sanctioned by the U.S. Croquet Association, conducts twice-monthly members' tournaments May through October on a pair of croquet courts on the Hayes Home lawn.

Annual membership is $25 per person or $40 per couple. The Center provides all the equipment and maintains the croquet courts. Members are free to use the courts at any time, but must reserve them by calling 419-332-2081. Members also may invite non-members to play at the Center's courts, but must be present during play (there is a $5 fee for each non-member). For a membership application click here
