LEARN, PLAY & EXPERIENCE THE FUN OF CROQUET.
Welcome to the Charles P. Steuber National Croquet Center (NCC). The NCC is the largest and finest dedicated croquet center in the world. It resides on ten beautiful acres in West Palm Beach just minutes away from Palm Beach International Airport. It is located between Trump International Golf course and The Palm Beach Zoo/The Science Museum on the corner of Florida Mango & Summit Avenue.
It has a 19,000 square foot, Caribbean-Colonial-style clubhouse, with wide verandas overlooking four acres of lush lawns that are the equivalent of laser-level putting greens (105’ X 84’ each). It is a haven of peace in a bustling world. Inside you will find wide entryways; gracious space for dining; an elegant lounge; and two ballrooms upstairs for dinners, dancing, or meetings, or a combination thereof. These qualities make it an ideal party space for almost any event. Click on the Events tab to get a full description of the building and its capacities.
Why is a croquet center offering party or meeting space? We want everyone to come and see that croquet is no longer just a backyard family game; or a game of the idle rich, or an “old folks” game. In its four variations, it can be all of these, but in reality is so very much more. It is now a serious sport with serious equipment that offers unique benefits to its players — young and old — and a game that should appeal to almost anyone, young or old; male or female.
