Thorpeness Croquet Open Day Saturday June 10th

Thorpeness Croquet Club will be holding an Open Day on Saturday June 10th for anyone interested in finding out more about the game and seeing whether they would like to play it regularly.

The Open Day will be held from 2pm on the club's lawn at the Ogilvie Pavilion Sports Ground, Thorpeness  IP16 4LY. There's plenty of parking space and club members will be on hand to introduce newcomers to the game. Please wear flat shoes (eg trainers).

Croquet is a sport where you hit a ball through a series of hoops with a long mallet. It needs skill and tactics rather than brute strength, so men and women, young and old, play on equal terms using an effective handicapping system that allows beginners to hold their own against much better players.

Club days are on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons when you will usually find others to play with but members can also arrange games on any day they choose. Membership fees are very reasonable and prospective members get two free taster sessions before they choose whether to join.

The club organises its own tournaments through the season and plays against other clubs in a local league but competing is not compulsory. Many of our members just play socially for fun.

So if you think croquet might be for you, we look forward to seeing you.
