Croquet is Thriving in Bath

The Annual Open Day has again led to us welcoming many new members to our thriving Club, as well as supporting Dorothy House Hospice. As the new members continue to develop their skills, with the provision of additional coaching in both Golf and Association Croquet, plans are afoot for them to participate in their own internal tournament.

Established members have been able to enter no less than ten internal competitions and rivalry has been healthily competitive as players attempt to move to the next round of each event.

Our teams have also worked tirelessly to promote Bath’s progress in the various league matches and national CA competitions. Details of such events can always be found in News listings.
