  • Hallam Handicap Doubles weekend

    The Hallam handicap doubles tournament, commemorating the late Brian Hallam - a fine croquet player who loved doubles - was contested by 14 pairs of club members this weekend, and much enjoyed despite a torrrential downpour flooding the lawns on Saturday after tea and forcing the event to be abandoned for the evening, and resumed Sunday morning. The winners of the main knockout event were Brian's son Omied Hallam partnering the up-and-coming 11 year old Elizabeth Shelton. There were also various prizes for the fastest game, most peels, the quiz etc.  More photos on the club's  Facebook page .

  • Resumption of many club activities

    Government relaxations of lockdown rules imposed due to the COVID-19 epidemic have enabled reopening of the club, with some constraints to reduce infection risks, and this has been met with enthusiasm by members. The online booking system has been well received and used. As well as lots of club friendly games being played:

    • The junior club has restarted on a weekly basis,
    • Coaching courses and activities are being offered at various levels,
    • Introductory coaching for new members begins on Monday 16th June,
    • Club competitions have been reintroduced, and 
    • We are exploring the possibility of holding tournaments again.

    Lawns 7 and 8 now have hoop holes drilled for half sized lawns which will be useful where full sized lawns are less appropriate; e.g. for Junior Club, Beginner Coaching and Short Croquet.
