Croquet appears at the Adelaide Fringe

Good Sports: 17th January, 2014

Croquet appears at the Adelaide Fringe

On the back of a highly successful stint promoting the game of croquet to the South Australian community along the River Torrens during the recent Ashes Cricket series in Adelaide (5-9 December) the Royal Croquet Club, in association with Croquet SA, is now about to bring Adelaide’s redeveloped Victoria Square alive

The Royal Croquet Club will become a hive of cultural and sporting activity at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2014 (14 Feb – 10 March). A full sized croquet lawn will be installed in the heart of the city for the three weeks of the Festival. This exciting space will include free Come N Try, along with multiple performance spaces, themed bars, food offerings, art installations, and plenty of live entertainment.

This amazing opportunity will bring the time-honoured sport of croquet to thousands of people, while opening up the traditional game to a much broader and younger audience. “Croquet really is a fun game for all ages, and the Royal Croquet Club is an intriguing and innovative concept. The best part of it all is that croquet volunteers enjoy being a part of it as much as the members of the public,” said Croquet SA President, Maree Skinner.

Croquet SA is a proactive Good Sports club, currently finalising their Level 2 accreditation.

Good Sports is a brilliant initiative and I would highly recommend any community sporting clubs join this free program,” said Maree.

Immediately following the Fringe, Croquet SA will be offering Friday Night Social Games at Croquet SA HQ on Hutt Road, on four consecutive Friday Nights (bookings essential). Contact Croquet SA for more details and to get involved: (08) 8271 6586

Get excited people, croquet is coming to town!
