CROQUET: The Warwick Croquet Club was formed in 1906 and has played on the lawns in Leslie Park for almost all of that 111 years.
Croquet is a sport that provides exercise for both the body and mind and can be played by anyone from about age eight and up.
Because of the nature of the game, a child and adult can compete in a game on equal footing, which makes it a unique sport.
We still have active participants aged in their 90s who benefit from the gentle exercise, as a player may walk a couple of kilometres over the course of a game.
There are two versions of the game played in Warwick - golf croquet and association croquet; although there are also other forms of the game as well.
Both these variants require the use of tactical thinking and the development of strategy to overcome your opponent.
A bit like a combination of chess and billiards on grass.
Croquet is played on Tuesday morning and Thursday and Saturday afternoons all year round, and in the twilight on Wednesdays and Sundays during the warmer months.
