FESTIVAL OF CROQUET

Do you want to represent your Club in the Festival of Croquet at Southport on Saturday/Sunday, 27th/28th June?

This annual Festival is open to all Clubs in the North West and attracts a large number of players with widely ranging handicaps.

There will be team competitions in 4 types of croquet:

ADVANCED DOUBLES

HANDICAP (18 point)

SHORT

 and   GOLF.

 Teams of 3 in all competitions, except Advanced (2 players).

 Select which form of Croquet you want to play, and whether you want to play Saturday or Sunday, or both days.

The Club will pay your entry fee. All you need to pay for is your food (£7.50 per day).

 

Come and enjoy some fun croquet, against other Clubs in the North West

And Bowdon won this last year so we want to retain the trophy.
