Southport Croquet Club held a very successful Come and Try event at the weekend, opening the lawns so that members of the public could try this unusual game. Mallets were provided and groups of keen visitors were talked through the basic strokes, walking the beautiful lawns and having a great deal of fun. Everyone seemed pleased with the event and the club is now preparing for their annual coaching course for beginners, held every Monday evening from 12th May, at 7 o’clock.
