Coaching at Shrewsbury Croquet Club

We have a new method of coaching at Shrewsbury Croquet Club:  Group teaching is out; new members or prospective members are taken under the wing of one or two established players and given intensive, individual training geared to their aptitude - or otherwise - for the game.

Once the basics have been explained and understood a simple game of doubles is played with each newcomer partnered and guided by his or her mentor.

There is no fixed timetable for this, but, for example, the ladies in the photo have taken part in 3 weekly sessions of 3 hours, under the guidance of their mentors, one of whom is the legendary Graham, secretary of the club (seen here in magisterial pose).

He may be contacted on 01939 233 196.
