You can have a crack at cro­quet

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

KYABRAM Cro­quet Club is cel­e­brat­ing se­niors week by giv­ing ev­ery­one the chance to try their hand at this most tra­di­tional of games — it even fea­tured in Alice in Won­der­land, so pop­u­lar has it been.

And all you need for your first crack at cro­quet is a pair of flat-soled shoes.

“You don’t have to book in for the day; peo­ple can just roll up here when they are ready and come on in,’’ Kyabram Cro­quet Club sec­re­tary Mar­garet Sul­li­van said.

‘‘The more we can en­cour­age to come along and have a go the mer­rier it will be,’’ she said.

“It’s a low-im­pact sport, with no ex­ces­sive bend­ing or twist­ing, so it’s also great for peo­ple with in­juries who want to get out and still con­tinue play­ing in a com­pet­i­tive but friendly sport.”

The come and try day will be on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 8, and runs from 8.30am-12pm.

Play­ers are ad­vised to re­mem­ber those flat-soled shoes be­cause equip­ment and light re­fresh­ments will be pro­vided on the day.

For more in­for­ma­tion call Mar­garet on 5853 1362 or Rayleen on 5853 2394.
