LYM Valley Croquet Club had an enjoyable day’s play at Camerton & Peasedown Croquet Club near Radstock in the SW Federation Short Croquet League.
With 16 games, each taking 75 minutes, it was a long day but made enjoyable by very sociable opponents and good weather.
Stan Curran was again on form, winning all four of his matches, John McCallum with three wins and Anne Macartney coming in with a great win against their strongest player to complete the scoring and make it a very creditable 8-8 draw.
It was good to see a new member of the club, Mike Prince, enjoying his first taste of regional competition, and to see great improvement as the day wore on.
John McCallum writes: “Lym Valley Croquet Club has its ground in King George V playing field in Uplyme. We are constantly looking for new members to join us and enjoy this growing sport.
“When I was introduced to the club in 2018, having never played a game of croquet in my life, I was struck by the tremendous support, encouragement and friendliness shown by all the club members.
“If you are interested in learning about croquet, why not consider coming along to our Wednesday morning coaching class to learn the skills and enjoy this sport. Contact the Secretary on email@example.com
