Croquet has been taking off in popularity – some say it was 2020’s fastest-growing game.
You can find out why this weekend Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 May.
Between 12 noon and 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday, Nottingham Croquet Club is inviting adults and children to swing a croquet mallet and send balls through hoops on their championship-quality lawns at Highfields Park.
Set beside the boating lake close to the University, the Club has three World Champions and a dozen internationals on its books.
David Brydon said:
“We have plenty of members who’ve taken up the sport in the last few years – including some enthusiastic juniors” explained David Brydon.
“We’d love anyone interested – adults or children – to come and have a go this weekend. You’ll need to wear flat shoes, and clothing to keep you warm and dry.
There’s no charge and no need to book. We’ll supply all equipment, and people will be on hand to explain how to play.
Then if anyone wants to take it further, we’ll explain how to join our next Learn to Play course starting 25 May.”
Users of Highfields Leisure Park may park free of charge in Nottingham Hockey Centre on the opposite side of University Boulevard.
