It’s OK to try croquet

January 11, 2018

Kyabram Croquet club champion Cameron Kelly and secretary Margaret Sullivan are welcoming everyone to come and try croquet.

KYABRAM Croquet Club is giving everyone the chance to try their hand at Golf Croquet and Aussie Croquet.

And all you need is $6 and a pair of flat shoes.

The come and try nights will be beginning tomorrow and running throughout the daylight saving period for you to make the most of those extra hours of light.

“The event is open to all ages and you don’t need any experience, two years in a row we had a 12-year-old come along and play,” Kyabram Croquet Club secretary Margaret Sullivan said.

“And you don’t have to book in for the day either; people can just roll up here on the night and come on in. The more we have in here the merrier.

“It’s a low-impact sport with no bending or twisting so it’s great for people with injuries who want to get out and continue playing sport.”

The evenings will offer locals the chance to come and try without needing to sign up for a membership at the club, however for those interested, memberships are available.

Club president Rayleen McDonald said croquet gives locals the chance to compete with players from around the district either socially or competitively.

“Our club spreads wider than just Kyabram; we’re part of a big network,” she said.

“We play social games at other clubs and host games here for other clubs to come along to.

“There’s also the pennant competition and we’re involved with other aspects of the golf croquet and association croquet, so it really is bigger than just Kyabram.”

The twilight come and try nights will begin January 11 with registration at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

Players are advised to bring flat soled shoes and $6 for the green fees, mallets are available and supper will be provided.
