Chester Croquet Club will host a national golf croquet tournament over the Bank Holiday weekend 27th and 28th August at Westminster Park. This is an inaugural event and has attracted players to Chester from clubs as far afield as Durham and Colchester.
Golf croquet is becoming ever more popular in Britain for several reasons. First and foremost, it is quite easy to start as a beginner and play locally and secondly, players do develop extraordinary skills. They hit croquet balls hard, fast and accurately from long distances and enter highly-competitive events such as this one. The game is played worldwide and three of the players on show have played in international tournaments wearing the England shirt.
The winners will receive the Maggie Cowman Trophy and the Telford’s Warehouse Plate.
Play starts at 09.15 each morning and will continue through until the early evening.
Spectators are very welcome so please come along to watch and support.
