GOLF CROQUET - Ditton May 2012

Yet another Federation Event for West Kent. 
Golf Croquet  lessons- on a misty wet day.

It is an 'all weather' sport and very sociable.  Among 16 'learners', Joyce, Joy, Val and Janice from Hollingbourne braved the elements and were lucky enough to have Heather teach them both skills and tactics - a vital part of the game, akin to snooker.
Janice (in the multi coloured jacket and flowing hair) is going to knock Val's red from the play area, 
encouraged by Joy (in navy). 
Look carefully past the figure in the foreground (who looks as if she could be a formidable opponent) and you will see Val (Purple top black trousers)  and Janice 
being given precise instructions by Heather (in White)
RAIN DOES NOT STOP PLAY IN CROQUET - 
Janice (this time with hood)  and Joy in the play off.

Unfortunately Janice and Joy did not win through,
 but Joyce and Val were Victors in their overall section.

Everyone thought it was very enjoyable and would have been fantastic without the rain!
There are several courts and you do not have to be a member to play. You can arrange your own game for a small fee. The Cobdown Sports and Social club is at the Traffic Lights in Ditton,Kent.
