Hamptworth Croquet Club would like to thank the Area Board for supporting their exciting project with the Duke of Edinburgh Award group at The Trafalgar School at Downton. The project will offer students from the school the chance to learn how to play croquet on full sized lawns and using quality equipment.
There are currently only two croquet clubs in the county of Wiltshire, so this really is an uncommon opportunity for young people to experience a traditional sport, which demands a range of skills, tactics, teamwork and planning and yet offers a such a huge amount of enjoyment.
Croquet’s governing body are not aware of any other such link in the country, so this is very much a first for all those involved ,the students, the School, the Croquet Club and, especially, the Area Board, without who the project would not have happened.
