One of the best croquet programs in the nation
Croquet is an increasingly popular sport in the United States, and the Mission Hills Croquet Club is one of the biggest and best croquet clubs in the world. We attract a growing number of national and international tournaments. The United States Croquet Association recently announced the recipients of its annual awards and we are proud to share that the USCA has designated us as USA Croquet Club of the Year.
But, the recognition doesn’t stop there. Our very own Blake Fields has been named Jr. Player of the year! The Fields family has been recognized as the USCA’s Family of the Year in honor of their three generations of croquet players.
For people unfamiliar with the game, croquet at Mission Hills is not what you played in your backyard as a youngster. The six-wicket croquet games played here, derived from the 160-year-old British sport, is more challenging than you might think. Mission Hills Croquet Club offers introductory classes, clinics, practice games and tournaments that pair beginners with more experienced players to help new players learn the game..
