As the official croquet season enters its last few weeks many of the external competitions and matches have been played. However, Chester Croquet Club is also in the Snowdonia Cup which is a local derby competition against Tattenhall, Craig-y-Don and Llanfairfechan croquet clubs.
The Chester Tribunes golf croquet team of Kerry Dadson (captain), Jude Wise, David Johnson and Arnie Bamford had another successful match, the final score being 13-5 to Chester. The day started with the threat of rain, but it thankfully never materialised, and a most enjoyable day of croquet was had by all.
This coming weekend, Saturday and Sunday, 16 and 17 September, Chester Croquet Club is proud to be hosting the national final of the Croquet Association’s All England association croquet handicap competition, where the finalists from regions across the whole of England compete to win the final trophy. Nine players from all over the country will be making their way to Chester and it should be a thrilling weekend’s play. Spectators are welcome to visit the lawns in Westminster Park at any time throughout the weekend. Click here for more details about how to find us.
