The important bit!
The Croquet group meet every Friday for two hours from 10 am at the Carhampton Recreation Centre. Now the COVID rules have changed, we can play outdoors in groups of six (whilst maintaining social distancing of course). We are restarting our weekly sessions on December 4th, but if more than a total of six turn up we can easily form smaller groups. Normally we can only accommodate a maximum of 16, as more than that would prove too difficult, so if you are thinking of joining the group please contact Pat Graham [but please see the note under Latest News below]. All of this depends on the weather of course and the condition of the playing area. Please remember to check the Calendar in case of any late changes to schedule.
Our group is led by Pat Graham, and she may be contacted at 01643 821638, or by email at Croquet@minehead-district-u3a.org.uk.
About the Group
If you are looking for a new activity, give a thought to Croquet. This is a game played by both young and old; it offers physical and mental exercise.
The mallets, hoops and balls are all provided. There is ample parking at the Recreation Hall in Carhampton, and even a bus stop directly outside.
During the good weather, we play outdoors for as long as possible.
The cost is £2 per person per session. If you might like to join the group or just come along for a taster, please contact the convenor, Pat Graham.
Carhampton croquet club now has to close any new applications to join. If any more members do wish to play croquet, we will have to suggest the formation of a second group which could play on another day – but they would have to liaise with the recreation Centre direct to set this up. Pat Graham may be able to provide further information
Unfortunately we can no longer play indoor croquet when the weather is bad, but on some occasions, with limited numbers, we can play short-mat bowls or table tennis in the sports hall.
