Clive Sawers - April


It is proposed to extend the playing times to allow much more flexibility. In particular we would like people in full-time employment to be able to enjoy croquet. Saturday afternoons and Monday evenings are available during the summer.

Autumn & Winter Play

At present ground conditions do not allow winter play. Unless the court has full drainage and is fully constructed using appropriate soils, all play has to cease in the autumn.
