News from the 2017 Season

Beginners' Course and Lauriston Ells
The Beginners' Course has 20 members this year.

They are all listening carefully to Allan Hawke as you can see!

The weather was particularly good for the first Saturday of the course and the Castle looked spectacular (although the members are far too busy learning their basic skills).



Fun Doubles

The Fun Doubles on 1st July was won by Andrew Macmillan and Stuart Meredith. They were presented with their trophy by last year's winner Gill Kerr.

Short Croquet Tournament

Rob Harvey won the Short Croquet Tournament on 9th July, winning all of his 3 games.

Stuart McKendrick Trophy

Halcyon Byers won the Stuart McKendrick Trophy on 16th July in an exciting play off against Roger Binks of Meadows Croquet Club. Both Halcyon and Roger won all 3 of their games earlier in the afternoon.

Tea Pot Challenge

For the first time since 2007 our team of Bob Darling, Jamie Edgar, David and Myra Fell, Duncan and Janet Lonie, Christine Frayling-Kelly, Halcyon Byers, John Louden and Billie Croan won the Teapot Challenge match against Meadows CC. Our non-playing captain Allan Hawke is seen above receiving the trophy. We achieved it by the narrowest possible margin, 26 points to 24.  What's more, the players said they enjoyed it, despite getting wet in several showers during the afternoon.  

Visiting Groups

We often hold sessions for visiting groups - this party is from the Caledonian Language School. 


End of Season 

The last Saturday of the season turned out to be a bit windy but we managed to navigate our way round all the leaves!
