New Members Doubles Evening

July 12th 2021

The Club have been delighted by the response to their recruitment campaign that commenced in April when the Club was allowed to open its lawns following lockdown.

New members have been warmly welcomed and have quickly settled into playing croquet on the Club’s four lawns at Bath Recreation Ground.

On Friday 7th July, in glorious sunshine, an evening of doubles golf croquet was held to give new members the opportunity to play in their first internal competition. The fun started at 4.30 p.m. with each new member supported by an experienced player to compete in three games. Many of the games were run very close at the bell and scoring when tallied showed Jane Meyer the overall winner and Martin Alabaster a close second, for the new members. Lionel Rose, closely followed by Ally Hoyland scored the highest points for the established membership. Prizes were presented by Hester Henebury who had organised the pairings for the event.

Whilst members meet several times each week for friendly games the Club also has eight league teams that play competitively against other clubs in the South West region as well as holding its own internal matches in which members compete throughout the season. So there is croquet play to suit all levels of skill and competitive appetite at Bath Croquet Club.
