Roll-up sessions are slots when lawns are booked for club play but not for specific individuals. Members may "roll up" in these timeslots and organise croquet games with anyone who is waiting. If lawns are all in use or no-one is waiting, we socialise (or do something worthy and useful) until a game is available.
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions meant we were unable to schedule this sort of session. Prior to that it had been a regular pattern on Tuesday afternoons and evenings. For 2021, until the newly laid west lawns are generally available, there may be too much demand for lawn time to schedule many slots of this sort, even if COVID-19 restrictions allow. We will reintroduce this popular format soon.
As of mid July we have two short rollup slots: Tuesdays and Wednesdays 6pm to 8pm are hosted and facilitated roll-up sessions mainly for the benefit of new players, but available for any club member who wishes to support new players. Tuesday is hosted by Debbie and Roger Watson and is mainly but not exclusively for Association Croquet; Wednesday is hosted by Ian Draper and is for Golf or Association Croquet. (Golf Croquet players also have the option of coaching on Thursday evenings 6pm to 8pm, but this is more formal coaching and places should be booked in advance with Cathy Turski).
