Beginners Day – Saturday 31st July

A special day has been arranged for our new/potential recruits to come along on Saturday, 31st July, from 12-4pm.

A meet-and-greet will be held before a brief refresher course is given, followed by half-hour games of one-ball, just to give everyone a bit of fun.

Refreshments will be offered during the afternoon before the final games.

Our President, Brian Storey, will then present the prizes and welcome everyone to the club. 

If you are free, please come along to show them what a great club we have!

NWF Millennium Short Croquet Tournament – 25th July

Brian Storey won the NWF Millennium Short Croquet Tournament at Chester on Sunday, 25th July. To compound things, Brian had to play with the handicap of having to do 3 peels on his partner ball while his opponents often had umpteen bisques to help them.

With good weather and fast lawns, plus a time limit of 1 hr 25 mins. to help him,  Brian and James Thomas had 3 wins out of 4 games each, but Brian won on count back having beaten James in their match.

Great fun was had by all competitors!
