2021 Berden Croquet
It is now May, the month during which we usually start our Village Croquet tournament. Last year it was sadly abandoned because of the pandemic. However this year we believe it should be possible to run an informal tournament again as the game lends itself to social distancing, is played in the open air and many people have been vaccinated.
If you haven’t tried it before. please do think about joining in. Some years ago we had as many as 32 teams of two taking part. There is a handicap system to help new or less experienced players and the way the games are organised means that everyone plays at least 3 times, quite aside from friendlies. We are pleased to say that there will not be an entry fee this year.
The organisers and the more experienced players are always happy to explain how the game works to beginners and those wanting to give it a try.
Traditionally we have ended the season with lunch and refreshments while the last games of the season are played.
