We play on lawns which are well maintained for us, and are located between the main football pitch at the sports club, and the Padgent Field. There are 3 closely mown lawns accommodating 12 - 16 players at any time.
Using four differently-colored balls we play mainly a form of golf croquet, 'running' the hoops in a certain order before hitting the peg. We also currently hold an annual 'pairs' competition and picnic.
Balls, hoops and pegs are provided. 'Worn' mallets are available but most members eventually purchase their own. Fees are very reasonable: a single FREE taster session is offered. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. No special clothing is required, however flat shoes must be worn.
Games are enjoyable rather then highly competitive.
Chairperson / Secretary:
