  • Nottingham Croquet Club feature on BBC soon

    On Wednesday, BBC East Midlands visited the club to film a piece mainly about our Hoops 4 Health programme, for their Sunday morning politics programme. (The link with politics seems to be that we're doing some "levelling up" of our own by helping people expand their horizons, enjoy our facilities  and have a go at a sport they otherwise might not have tried). 

    The piece, presented by Geeta Pendse, is likely to be on the East Midlands Politics programme which is broadcast on the East  Midlands regional BBC1 and begins at 10:00 on a Sunday morning, either on 15th May 2022 or 22nd May 2022. It will then be available on BBC iPlayer for 4 weeks.  We also hope to have a copy of the piece to post on our club website.

  • Charity One ball championship

    Yesterday we were pleased to host the Northern Area Final of the Croquet Association One-ball championship. 

    The event was won decisively by Nottingham member Mark Innes (photo below) with 8 games unbeaten; runner-up was Cathy Dance from York Croquet Club. 

    Across the whole of the CA, this year's event has so far raised over £8,000 for the mental health chairty MIND.
