Perks of Membership
Following full membership approval you will be given access keys and information so you can use the clubhouse and equipment at your pleasure any day of the week except for special closing times for maintenance.
Throughout the season we offer a wide variety of organized activities and competitions. For example, every week NYCC offers Wednesday Play, where members gather to play three time slots worth of different formats of croquet.
Membership grants you personal access to your own "backyard" in Central Park for leisurely fun, pick-up games with other members that drop by or with guests (see Club Rules). There is no quicker way to feel like you are in the countryside than to practice croquet on the lush, cloistered Central Park croquet lawns, one of the most extraordinary venues for croquet in America.
Members receive invitations to cocktail hours usually held at Tavern on the Green & other social events and to intraclub tournaments and mini-tournaments.
The modern sport of competitive croquet had its beginnings at the New York Croquet Club in Central Park and we remain one of the most acclaimed clubs in the nation with many top players. Competitive croquet is an emerging sport with 3,000 people playing nationwide, many more around the world, and our own American professional organization headquartered in West Palm Beach, FL - The United States Croquet Association.
