Croquet revival at Ludlow Castle Tennis Club
ENTHUSIAST David Jones is leading a croquet revival in South Shropshire.
Ludlow Castle Tennis Club (LCTC) have created a croquet lawn in part of the north field.
More than 30 Castle tennis members swapped their racquets for mallets.
Now the committee believe croquet could become part of the LCTC portfolio.
Vice-chairman Gordon Hutchins said: “A number of people have been enthused about playing croquet at the club on a regular basis.
“We will have to put a lot more work into bringing the lawn up to a good standard.
“But we’d be delighted if the club could attract some croquet players, as well as seven more tennis players who would enjoy a game of croquet.”
