All croquet is remains suspended at Phyllis Court
(and the rest of the country)
Due to the on-going Coronavirus Crisis, the main Phyllis Court Club was closed fully to comply with the 'Lockdown' movement restrictions announced by the government.
The CA had already cancelled or postponed all croquet playing activity under its auspices until the end of May and the SCF did likewise, suspending the start of all its league
competitions for the same period.
Both organisations remarked that extensions to this suspension period were likely to be announced in due course.
Most clubs followed suit fairly swiftly and then, with the 'Lockdown' announcement of 23 March, all sporting activity (and all social gatherings) were effectively banned.
As we end the sixth week of abiding by the 'stay at home' instruction, Phyllis Court have furloughed over half of the regular staff, including the grounds staff, and once a week
mowing of the courts is being undertaken by Barry Foster and Big Mike of the Maintenance team.
We are not aware of any casualties due to the Coronavirus Pandemic (and the associated Covid-19 disease) amongst our membership.
