Anyone for Croquet?

March 10, 2018

Thankyou to Lesley for this… ‘If you have never played before why not try our Taster Day for Golf Croquet. It’s a great game. If you are interested in joining us please see the poster …’

Thames Valley Croquet Club is a Golf Croquet Club based at the Abbey Vale Cricket Ground (Hales & Hays Meadow) who meet twice a week on Mondays and Fridays all year round. They were formed in 1990 at the WI college in Marcham, and moved to the Cricket Club so that men and women will have equal access.

I see that a ladies croquet club was started up in 1921 and two lawns provided at the Albert Park in Abingdon. (From the Faringdon Advertiser and Vale of the White Horse Gazette – Saturday 14 May 1921. Image © Successor rightsholder unknown. Found in

    Ovoid balls, very unusual!
