We had an excellent days croquet on the superb lawns at the very well prepared lawns at Nottingham Coquet Club and our thanks are due to them both for the lawns and the facilities made available to us.

It was nice to meet people from a Club we had not come across before and the game was played in a very friendly way with the majority of the games quite close.

Just before the start one of the Hunstanton team phoned to say his wife was ill and needed treatment so he would definitely be late and possibly not arrive at all.

Fortunately the Club Secretary who is just recovering from major heart surgery had come to support us and after being kitted out with shoes and a mallet proceeded to play his first games since his operation.
