Season End 2020

I would like to thank all of our members for supporting the club throughout the current Covid-19 pandemic.

For the last session of the 2020 season a match was arranged between our Team A and Team B, Southern Croquet Federation squads.

Team A: Kate Crumpler, Barry Dench, Lexie Oakenfold, Sonia Helmsley, Tony Cumes, Art Wardle (Capt.)

Team B: Lesley Wooltorton, Barry Jolly, Mike Tomkins, Tricia Clayton, Ruth Elkins, Terry Huxtable (Capt.)

It was a close and enjoyable match, appreciated by all players, with Team B winning, 7-5.

Hopefully, 2021 will be a much better year and permit us to have a more ‘normal’ croquet season.

Art Wardle, Chairman.

Team ‘B’ Lesley Wooltorton, Barry Jolly, Mike Tomkins, Tricia Clayton, Ruth Elkins, Terry Huxtable (Capt.)

More news re. Covid-19 restrictions

The members have been enjoying some glorious weather on the croquet lawns and with the easing of restrictions, the precautions for playing croquet have relaxed further.

With effect from 3rd August 2020, six members are permitted to play on a single lawn, this will enable the playing of a Singles and a Doubles match on each lawn.  All play must still be booked using the manual booking system by first contacting Trish Clayton.

2020 Season Opening Announced

Much against expectation, croquet will be played in Bransgore this year but under very different conditions. As you might expect, social distancing will be maintained to the current government advice. All the details are in the documents sent out by email to all members who have email with a hard copy to those who do not. For convenience the document are reproduced here and can be accessed by clicking the appropriate link below.

2020 AGM – Cancelled

Following public health advice with reference to the Corona Virus and public gatherings, The Committee have decided to postpone the Bransgore Croquet Club AGM, scheduled for Wednesday 18th March, to a date to be clarified, once the current crisis has abated.
This decision is based entirely on the health and wellbeing of all our members. It is believed to be unreasonable to expose attendees to the unnecessary risk in attending the AGM meeting as it is being held in a small hall with people in close proximity.

2020 AGM

The AGM is to be held on Wednesday 18th March at 3.00 pm. The Venue is:
The Pavilion, Burley Road, Bransgore.

The Agenda has been published in the “Club Business” section of the “Members Area” for which you need to be registered and signed in.
