Easy Sunday Barbecue

Today was Spring Time Bring and Share Barbecue Day at the Croquet Club. Twenty seven members and friends brought salad or dessert to share -sausages, onions and bread was supplied. From about mid morning to mid afternoon Golf Croquet and Association Croquet was played in such a relaxed mood that no-one even kept score. Much time was spent in friendly conversation, and many hands made light work of the washing up and packing away.

Behind the scenes the last minute touches are being made to the Croquet Carnival being held next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Thirty six visiting players will contest Doubles play each morning, followed by eight Singles games over the three days.
Lunches will be catered for each day, and a Carnival Dinner shared at the local Aquatic Club on Thursday evening.

On Friday night trophies will be presented to the winners, and we will all promise to meet up again on a croquet court somewhere - hopefully at our club again next year.

On Court 1.

Our club house is a heritage listed railway goods shed moved to the site over 60 years ago.
