Croquet players embrace return to courts


Following lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, it’s now business as usual for the crew at the Toronto Croquet Club.

The players were extremely happy when the NSW Government recently lifted restrictions – allowing them to return to the courts swinging their mallets.

“The 70-plus club members wasted no time in honing their skills out there,” publicity officer Liz McDonald said.

“For instance, Tom Cleary, who turned 95 in August, was thrilled to be back catching up with everyone and having a few games of croquet.

“It was great to see the happy smiling faces out enjoying the sport they love.”

McDonald said the Toronto Croquet Club was gearing up for a busy finale to 2021.

“The division one pennants will start up again in November,” she stated.

“Rotary is also organising a fun day end of year celebration, with a few games of croquet thrown in.

“That looks like going ahead in December.

“I think everyone’s just happy to be outdoors again.”
