Croquet Match

On 10th August 2021, members of U3A, The Mayor of Swanley Cllr Paul Darrington , Swanley Town Council Councillors and Swanley Town Council staff were challenged to two croquet matches on Swanley Recreation Ground.

During the first match, those who had not played Croquet before were paired up with U3A members.

This produced a level playing field and gave the novices some experience.

The second match was novices against U3A and everyone had to bring their ‘A’ game!

U3A were obviously the winners but it was a fiercely fought game, with some of the novices showing some surprising skills during the matches.

It was a really fun evening and a return match is being arranged.
