Get into the swing with Croquet!
As the saying goes, "what's old is new again." That certainly is the case with the sport of Croquet. Across the country croquet clubs are being formed in neighborhoods, fitness facilities, and golf courses. The Hayes Presidential Center Croquet Club was organized in 2009. The club offers practice play twice a month with twice-monthly members tournaments in between. Play occurs 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).
