New season re-opening

After resting the courts over the last couple of weeks, I’m pleased to confirm their re-opening on Monday. The Calendar on this website is now set-up with our new regular time-table, and is available for members to book as normal.

Please note that all our previously published Covid rules have now been relaxed, in line with Government and Croquet Association (CA) advice. However, the virus is still very much in circulation, and some of our members have regular close contact with vulnerable people; so we would ask members to continue to be careful and to take sensible precautions, and not to come to the Club if exhibiting any potential Covid symptoms.

The Committee has also decided to maintain use of the Calendar, to pre-book all playing attendance at the Club. The only exceptions are matches and tournaments where the organiser knows who is taking part. This is now primarily to stop popular sessions becoming over-subscribed. We don’t want people turning up and finding they can’t get a game (or join in a coaching session). So please:

  • don’t just “turn up” without having booked a place on the Calendar.
  • do please contact the session owner to free up a place, if you decide against coming to a session you’d previously booked.

David Long, Club Secretary.
