Croquet Groups A, B and PM

Leader/Coordinator: ‘Ronnie Richardson

Aims and Objectives of the group: To enjoy the game of croquet, using tactics to win a hoop, playing as a team, being able to play as a mixed group and have lots of fun.


Any expertise needed: The groups have received coaching from me and when I have been on courses in recent times I have passed this knowledge on to the groups.

Equipment needed (rough costs if any): All our equipment is up to date at the moment. Balls have to be renewed due to damage during play and croquet mallets have to be repaired.

Maximum number permitted in the group: 12 people in each of the three groups

Location, day and time of meetings: Leader’s home, Monday mornings 10:00am – 12:00noon every other week for each morning group and 1:30pm to 3:30pm for the afternoon group which meets every Monday except for the third Monday in the month. We play from April until the end of October.

A brief description of a typical meeting: Members get into groups of 4 players and the game commences, the idea is to go through six hoops in order. The first team to get 4 hoops is the winner, unless the score is 3 all, then an extra hoop is played. After each game the members mix up into another team and continue playing the next game.
