Home Team fixtures will usually occupy just Lawns 1 & 2 for the afternoons, however finishing times are not fixed and some
fixtures have 'run on' a bit in the past.
The Exception to this is the PCC 'A'  home fixtures on 20/4, 21/6 and 15/7 - which are 'all day' affairs.
If Lawn 2 becomes waterlogged again this season, it may be necessary to commandeer Lawn 3 for occasional matches
and members booking Lawn 3 on Team Fixture afternoons, should be aware of this please.

  Alterations to the above will be notified via this web site
   www.pcccroquet.co.uk
(no password required)
  so please 'save as a favourite' and visit regularly.
