I play croquet twice a week when the weather is fine and not too hot. I have the odd hit at Golf Croquet, but my choice is Association Croquet. It is quite complex and challenging, makes you think and plan, helps you learn to relax - you can't play well if you are uptight. There were no coaches at our club when I began, so I completed a coaching course and set about coaching myself.
A member of a nearby club taught me to respect the Laws of the game. He trained players as referees, and worked hard to lift the standard of refereeing. I am now the State Director of Refereeing in NSW. Thank you Merv.
