Warkworth - 2 Lawns
We are delighted to welcome you to Warkworth Croquet Club.
Saturday 4 July
A nice winter's day was well spent by 11 lucky players at the Warkworth Croquet Club's lawns. No need to celebrate American Independence Day, when you can play croquet in the sunshine at the Point Wells croquet lawns, which we have to say are in great shape after their lockdown refurbishment! A big thanks to all who were "kind" to the lawns pre and post lockdown.
Getting the draw done so we can play, and fun was had by all!
First Interclub results after lockdown go to Warkworth
The Warkworth Interclub team Ann, Marlyn, Peter and Marion had a win against Pt Chev. The games were very close and it was great to get out there in the open again. The new lawns performed well for us and the sun was shining nicely, so a good day all round post lockdown.
Great news, play can start again from Monday 8 June. Both lawns can be used, but please read the Care of Lawns information

Monday - 9.30 for a 9.45 am start

CARE OF LAWNS
Following our refurbishment of the grounds this month at considerable expense, it is important that we look after the lawns over winter especially, and ongoing.
We have cleared star weed from the lawns so wash/brush the soles of your shoes often - but definitely if you have been to another croquet club (especially Pakuranga or Henderson) or bowling green.
No walking on the lawns unless playing
No jump shots
No standing around the hoops
Do not walk directly onto the lawn when you arrive and leave - walk along the side.
We are still in Level 2 and need to meet the required health guidelines. A notice at th clubrooms sets out the requirements for everyone to play croquet at the club. These are to ensure the health and safety of all members.
NOTICE FOR MEMBERS
IN THE INTERESTS OF KEEPING EVERYONE HEALTHY OVER WINTER
PLEASE USE HAND SANITISER WHEN YOU ARRIVE
DO NOT SHAKE HANDS
(We say “have a good game” at the start of a game so we can finish with “thankyou for the game”)
If you have a cold or flu symptoms please stay away
from the Club.
In the case of a cold that lingers maybe give it a couple of weeks until the danger of passing it on to other members is over.
Along with the current Health Dept advice, do not come out to the Club for at least 14 days if you have been overseas, or in contact with suspected flu cases.
