Anyone for croquet
AN OPEN day to promote a quintessential English past time will be held in Nailsea on Saturday.
More than 100 members of Nailsea Croquet Club have dusted off their mallets and taken to the lawns of its venue in Kenford Park, Trendlewood Way, to launch the new season and will be on hand to show visitors what the game is about.
A national charity competition held recently, where 24 players wore pink in support of the Breast Cancer Campaign, raised �140.
The winners will play in a final in Winchester on May 12-13.
The club caters for beginners to international level of all ages, including juniors.

Spokesman Kathy Wallace said: “If you have enjoyed competing in a sport in the past but can no longer sprint around a field and keep up with the youngsters, you will love croquet.
“It requires a good eye, co-ordinated movement and logical thought, but not any great physical strength or speed.”
