The Home of Tyneside Croquet Club
It is with sadness that we announce the passing away of Caroline Wallace on Saturday 14th January. Caroline had been a member since 2002 and enjoyed her time playing and travelling away to tournaments supporting Peter. The Wednesday morning sessions will be notable by her absence. We offer our sympathy to Peter and family.
Caroline's funeral service will take place at St. Nicholas Church at 9.45am (opposite Peter's house) followed by cremation at South Shields Crematorium.
Due to the inclement weather preventing us entering the park by car on Friday 13th for the club luncheon, we have now arranged to go on Friday 20th January from 12 noon.
Also, due to a mix up with dates, the next Committee Meeting will now be Tuesday 24th January 10.30am.
The last club luncheon in the Café in the Park was deemed a success so we aim to have another one on Friday 13th January 2017 from 12 noon.
The club AGM will be on Sunday 19th February 2017 at 2pm in the Pavilion, Exhibition Park.
Here we are back again and the season is fast approaching the final hoop.....
It is proposed that we intend to change the website provider in the near future for a more cost effective and user friendly site, so keep an eye open for the major changes.
Tyneside Croquet Club was established in 1983 and is at home in Exhibition Park, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 4PZ. (See Photo Gallery for directions to Exhibition Park.)
Newcastle is easily reached by good road, rail and air links from any part of the country and the club is situated within Exhibition Park on the northwest edge of the city centre.
With a membership of around 30, two courts (ex bowling greens) in Exhibition Park and a substantial pavilion situated in a major city park, we are in an enviable stuation for a croquet club.
The Croquet Association (CA) www.croquet.org.uk is croquet's governing body of which we are a member club and we are also affiliated to its regional federation Croquet North (CN). www.croquetnorth.org.uk
We play Association and Golf Croquet and have fixed allocated club days and evening sessions, hold coaching sessions and club championships. We have teams competing in the Croquet North leagues for both AC and GC. Also we host 2 CA tournaments: Midweek AC Handicap in June and Advanced Weekend in August.
We would consider any corporate visit to the club, when we could provide supervised games and light refreshments -
