HORSHAM Croquet Club had their season opening day last week in cold and wet conditions.

Club member Donna Frost said the event was on August 17. 

Even though the greens were wet due to heavy overnight rain, the club members had an enjoyable day.

“It was a bit damp under the feet but everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day,” Frost said. 

“It didn’t rain too much while we were playing, it just rained before and after.” 

The club welcomed members from Kalimna Park and Dimboola croquet clubs.

“We had 32 people come to the season opening,” Frost said. “It was great that we had visitors from Kalimna Park and Dimboola.”

One of Horsham Croquet Club’s life members Iris Williams did the honour of rolling the first hoop and declaring the season open.

Frost said some people had a game of indoor bowls while waiting to play croquet, which was a bit of fun.

“We then had afternoon tea and Williams told all the members and croquet goers about her days at the club,” she said.

The Horsham Croquet Club’s next big event will be on October 8. 

The club will host a come and try day in conjunction with seniors week. 

Frost said anyone could come and try on the day.
