Winter Roll-up Sessions a Success

It appears a little cold weather is not stopping our members from playing croquet.

The club has been hosting the sessions 3 times a week, where members just turn up, and are drawn at random with a partner, and or an opponent for a 50-minute match.   As both experienced and inexperienced players are attending, it is providing a good training ground for the inexperienced players, while the experienced players get to experiment with new strategies.

With almost a third of our membership turning up now, who knows how popular it will be in the summer!

New Website

Our new website has been live for a week now, and are hoping you are finding it informative. We look forward to receiving emails with any comments or suggestions you may have to make this website even better.

Presentation of Awards

On Sunday 17th October, the presentation of awards for the summer competitions were held. Prizes and trophies were distributed by Andrea Huxley. The weather was kind to us and the two dozen members who attended were treated to cake, courtesy of Hilary Bird and Andrew Jackson. All in all, a good afternoon.
