Free trial games of croquet

COME play croquet is the message from Warwick Croquet Club vice-president Dorothy Gartery.

The club has been in operation for more than 100 years but never stops inviting new members to play. Gartery said beginners' croquet was on each Thursday from 3pm.

"Elizabeth Gray coaches the beginners," Gartery said.

The emphasis each Thursday is on golf croquet, a version of the game which is a little less complicated than association croquet.

"It is a little like going around a golf course," she said.

For beginners, croquet, mallets will be provided by the club.

There are two free lessons then new players can either join the club and pay $5 a day or sample more Thursday afternoon days at $7 while they decide if croquet is a sport for them.

PR officer Helen Ferrier said the club recently welcomed two couples from Central Queensland who were travelling the state.

 

Beginners

  • Prospective players welcome to croquet lawns on northern side of Leslie Park from 3pm each Thursday for lessons.
  • Two free lessons.
