CHESTER CROQUET CLUB

 

Summer’s coming, make the most of it!

 

Welcome for new members and learners

 

Why not try a new outdoor leisure activity this summer?  Croquet is an interesting and enjoyable game which, with its handicapping system, can be played on equal terms by men and women of all ages and abilities.

 

Perhaps you have played garden croquet with family or friends and would like to learn more about the game. Perhaps you have hung up your boots or trainers after playing a more strenuous sport and would like to switch to a game that involves challenge and skill but does not require the strength and stamina of more energetic activities. Perhaps the children have left home and you find you have more time. Perhaps you have just retired or moved to the area and would like to try something new. Or perhaps you would just like to escape from the phone or computer or kitchen or daily round of work and enjoy a stimulating game in the fresh air? Why not try your hand at croquet?

 

Chester Croquet Club meets in Westminster Park off Hough Green in Chester. It is a friendly and successful club with about a hundred members and is always pleased to welcome new members of all standards from absolute beginners to more experienced players.

 

There will be an initial taster session at 6.30 to 8.30 pm on Tuesday, 29 April, for which there is no charge. This will be followed by a comprehensive beginners’ course at the same time on Tuesday evenings for five weeks from 6 May to 3 June 2014. The fee is £30 but is free for new members joining the club at a subscription of £52 for the full season.

 

Coaching is also available for people who have played before and would like to improve their skills.

 

No previous knowledge of the game is needed and all equipment will be provided by the club. The only requirement is that players must wear flat-soled shoes.

 

If you would like to enroll or would like more information, please contact the club secretary, John Dawson, at 01244 675929.

Come and join in, and bring your family or friends!

CHESTER CROQUET CLUB

Summer’s coming, make the most of it!

Welcome for new members and learners

 

Croquet may not be an Olympic sport but it’s a game that can be played and enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. It does not require the strength or stamina needed for more strenuous sports and the handicapping system means that it can be played on equal terms by men and women from beginners to more experienced players.

Now that we are looking forward to warmer days and longer evenings, why not come and try your hand at croquet as an interesting and enjoyable outdoor leisure activity for the summer months?

This year Chester Croquet Club is offering a free taster session on Sunday afternoon, 15 April, from 2 to 5 pm at the club’s lawns in Westminster Park off Hough Green in Chester.

For those who would like to develop their skills further, there will be two further introductory sessions for golf croquet at 2 pm on Sunday afternoons on 22 and 29 April. These sessions are ideal for people who have not played the game before and who would like to learn more about it. The club is also offering a more comprehensive introductory course for association croquet at 6.30 pm on Thursday evenings for six weeks from 3 May to 7 June. This course is aimed at people who have played some croquet before, perhaps golf croquet or garden croquet, and who would like to develop their skills and tactics for association croquet.

All equipment is provided by the club and the only requirement is that players must wear flat-soled shoes.

If you are interested in joining the initial taster session or the introductory sessions for golf croquet, please contact Pat Clare on 0151 3362606.
