- Court 1 will be out of action until the path/garden work is completed - next week I should think.
- Court 2 is always our soggiest and is currently waterlogged.
- Court 3 saw Chris siting the hoops today with great help from Madeleine and Geoff Probert (and Geoff isn't even a croquet member, so thanks all the more Geoff!)
  Helena and Mike Fensome where the first in action at this afternoon.

  Always check our website front page to see if play is possible or not each day.
