There are 4 airports within a 2 hour drive from the Croquet Club: Arlanda (150 km), Bromma (122 km), Skavsta (95 km) and Västerås (48 km). Arlanda is the major airport to which most airlines fly. Bromma is primarily a domestic airport but has few international flights as well. Skavsta and Västerås service some low cost airlines.
There are several hotels in central Eskilstuna, a 10 minute drive from the lawns. You can find them on booking sites such as http://sv.hotels.com/ There are some cottages for rent within walking distance from the lawns that house four people each. You have to bring your own linens and bathrooms are shared in a separate building. Their website (http://solvik.kfum.se) is not user friendly so if you are interested in staying there and need help with the booking, please contact Tomas Englund at email@example.com. There is also a campsite close by where you canrent a cottage or set up a tent or caravan. This is their website: Mälarbadens Camping (http://www.malarbadenscamping.se/).
