Croquet to hosts
Plimmerton Croquet Club held its Croquet? Ole! golf croquet tournament recently.
The annual contest caters for 32 players from throughout the region.
Six rounds of doubles are played with every player having a new partner for each of their six games.
During the course of the day this mixing process ensures competitive interaction with at least 15 other players.
The social format has proved very popular and the tournament has been fully subscribed every year, said club publicity officer Alison Lloyd Davies.
