It is almost two years since Letchworth Croquet Club moved from the lawns behind the golf centre in Willian Way to the tennis club in Muddy Lane.

The president, Duncan Hector, has worked hard during this time and, with the help of some of the other members, has brought the two new lawns up to perfect playing condition.

The club has more than 50 members of varying ages and abilities, and a lively social side too.

The game is great fun and easy to learn, and one of the attractive points about being a member is that on four designated afternoons a week, all through the year, between 2-5pm.

You can just turn up and will get a game with whoever else is there - so no planning, no making fixed arrangements, no having to find a partner!

For anyone interested in giving it a try, there will be a six-week introductory course at the club starting on Saturday, April 5.
