Croquet players go to the beach too




Adelaide Croquet Players Group 

The Adelaide Croquet Players Group is a group of players in South Australia who get together from time to time to practice and share their experience with a view of playing better and more adventurous croquet. 

Their next session will be on Sunday 17th September 2006 at Hyde Park Croquet Club, starting at 12 noon and finishing at 5.00 pm.  Afterwards, there will be a barbecue down the road at 90 Northgate Street.
