  • James Death won AC Advanced Weekend

    James Death was undefeated with 8 wins to win the two day Advanced Weekend.  He also won the peeling prize, with 5 TPs.  After an autumnal start on Saturday morning, the lawns dried off as the sun shone, leaving some quite tricky conditions, which may explain his lack of sextuple attempts.

    Full results are on Croquetscores.

    Many thanks to the cooks for the weekend, Diana and Debbie on Saturday and Sophie on Sunday, and to Debbie Lines for managing.

  • Highfields Park Re-Opened after Restoration

    Highfields Park was officially re-opened on 31st August after a £4.8M restoration project, largely funded by the Heritage and Big Lottery Funds.  The formal speeches were followed by a community open day, for which the club opened its lawns, along with other outdoor games, boating on the lake and a jazz band.  As the photo shows, it was a glorious day and well supported.  Many thanks to the club members who helped entertain the visitors.

  • Croquet for All

    You may have seen the new 'Croquet for All' banner outside the club, which is part of an initiative by the club to try and broaden the appeal of
    croquet to a wider cross-section of the local population Thanks to members Will Gee, Michael Finnigan, Alexi Ringrose and Ferzana Shan for being the
    models and David Brydon for organising the photo shoot.

    This initiative has been embraced by the Pakistan Forum, who sent their President, Vice-president and another member to the club during the Annual
    Week to have a look round. They have invited the club to their Independence Day celebrations on 25th August and 11 members will be sitting down to a 5
    course meal of traditional Pakistani food, as well as promoting the game to several hundred guests.

    Earlier on the same day club Chairman Beatrice McGlen will be doing an interview on Radio Dawn with presenter Ferzana Shan who has been a member of
    the club for the last 3 years.  Radio Dawn is a local station targeting the Muslim population in Nottingham.
