New club croquet a winner

Congratulating one another after a round of club croquet in Lismore on Thursday were (l-r) Bev Birmingham, Rosemary Goodall, Bonnie Emery and Beryl Wotherspoon.

Lismore and Ballina Croquet Clubs continuing trials of a new social style croquet game have created a real buzz with over 50 participants from six regional croquet clubs already taking part.

The new club style croquet is a modified version of golf croquet designed to make social games easier, and allow beginners and advanced players to compete together in large numbers.

Golf croquet is becoming very popular in Canada and the USA.

The new club croquet sessions are being held for players of all standards on Thursday mornings from 9am and Sunday afternoons from 3pm. Families with children nine years and over are invited to come on Sundays and school holidays to play together. Players should wear joggers or flat-soled shoes. The clubs will supply all the equipment and the first time is free, then $4 per session. For more information phone 6621 2865 (Lismore) or 6686 9210 (Ballina).
