Thanks to Mike for this …
Two weeks ago, The Thames Valley Croquet Club held their annual Ladies Day Golf Croquet tournament at their grounds in Hales Meadow, Abingdon.
The tournament was well attended. Participants coming from the Isle of Wight, Dorset, Oxfordshire and surrounding counties. Competition was fierce, and for the first time the winners and runners-up were from the host club. A very good day was had by all.
Last week the winners of our tournament went to Taunton to compete in the Women’s Institute Inter-federation Golf Croquet tournament and came out on top to win that tournament also.
The club is looking for new faces, of both sexes, of all abilities, from absolute beginners to previous players, and all ages. So why not come along and give us a try.
We play throughout the year, on Mondays and Fridays 1.30pm – 4.30pm in the Summer and 11am – 2.30pm in Winter. Membership fees are modest. Our courts are within the Abingdon Vale Cricket Club grounds, Hales Meadow, Culham Road, Abingdon.
If you have never played before we will happily give coaching. We are a friendly bunch and you will be made very welcome. Enjoy some fresh air, gentle exercise and give the grey matter a workout!
For more details, please give Mike a ring on 01235203082 or drop in to the Club and make yourself known.
P.S Golf Croquet has simpler rules than Association Croquet (each turn is just a single stroke), but it requires a similar level of accuracy and tactical awareness.
