Croquet Club News

The Croquet Club have been delighted that their Winter Tournament Program has been so well supported this year. Competitors have so far travelled from 15 different English counties, London and South Wales to enjoy the unique atmosphere that Hamptworth provides.


Some readers might be surprised that croquet is played during the Winter months, but while other croquet clubs hibernate between the end of September and the start of April, the hardy (or foolish?) members of Hamptworth dress up in their hats, coats and scarves and brave the elements - well, most of the time!

This month also sees the start of the project between the Croquet Club and the Duke of Edinburgh Award group from The Trafalgar School at Downton. Hamptworth Croquet Club is proud to be playing a part in the development and achievements of our local young people.

Towards the end of April, the club will be publishing the details of this year's Introductory Sessions. These are aimed at people who have never played the game before, but would like to find out if croquet is for them. They are expecting there to be a limited number of membership places available from May, but there will be no pressure to take out a membership, so if you think that croquet might be for you, please check out the next edition or visit their website.
