Juniors try their hand at croquet

PEG Porter is enthusiastic about the potential to grow the sport of croquet in schools.

“We are always looking for new members, particularly younger people,” the Warwick Croquet Club president said.

On the last day of school before holidays, 28 students, aged five to 12, from Dalveen State School spent an hour at the club being instructed by five members.

The club plays games each Tuesday morning and Saturday afternoon with golf croquet and coaching for new members each Thursday from 2pm.

Prospective members can call Porter on 46670112 or attend a come-and-try day on August 22 from 10am to noon.
