Every year more people, of all ages and abilities, are taking up croquet and Swindon Croquet Club is one of the region’s premier clubs.
The Club is always open to new players and visitors with a welcoming atmosphere and free coaching and equipment, but 13th May is extra special as it’s National Croquet Day – a special opportunity for you to try croquet for yourself.
The Club will be welcoming a number of guests, Swindon’s Mayor, Councillor Maureen Penny will open proceedings at 10am and during the day Swindon’s 2 MP’s, Justin Tomlinson MP and Robert Buckland QC MP will be also be visiting. They will be trying croquet out for themselves so why not join them?
Croquet is a game where, using a long handled mallet, you hit balls through a series of hoops, or stop your opponent. It is a game of strategy and skill and is competitive, yet sociable, active and healthy.
If you just think friends, fun, fitness, sport, strategy and skills – that’s croquet.
Croquet at Swindon is played all year and is a sport for all ages. If you are not as agile as you used to be or if you are looking for a new sport or interest then croquet is for you.
So why not go along to Swindon Croquet Club on 13th May, the day starts at 10am and ends at 4pm.
Club Secretary John Airey said, “You’ll find us at Moredon Playing fields, Cheney Manor, opposite Manor Garden Centre. We all look forward to greeting you and introducing you to this fascinating sport – just contact me on 01793 873026”.
