The lawns were originally laid many years ago in the existing beautiful gardens for the benefit of the weekend guests to the large house that used to stand there. During the time the building was a school the lawns were used for tennis. These were then returned to their original use by Crawley Council in 1983 and the Crawley Croquet Club was formed. The lawns are mowed and maintained by the Council. There are two full size lawns (which are sometimes split into four half size lawns) and a smaller practice one.
Over the past few years Worth Park has undergone work aimed at restoring it to its former glory and a visit to the Worth Park Friends website at www.worthparkfriends.org will give a wealth of information about the history of the park.
Crawley Croquet Club, as an affiliated member club of Croquet England (CE), accepts that all our members have a responsibility to safeguard all vulnerable people sharing in all our activities. (see our Policy Notices page).
We are also affiliated to Croquet South East (Formerly the South East Croquet Federation)
