  • NOT go to the club if you are experiencing any symptoms of a cold or flu, in particular a cough or high temperature. Use the NHS helpline and seek advice. For your own protection, follow the advice about self-isolation if you are, or are living with, someone in one of the vulnerable groups.

  • Book lawns in advance using the EACF’s court booking system https://cbs.angliacroquet.uk/?club=13 . Additionally, a COVID QR code is displayed for track and trace purposes. These measures temporarily replace the need to sign-in using the paper diary.
  • Maintain social distancing of 2 metres (i.e. 2 mallet lengths) at all times.
  • Clean contact surfaces such as padlocks, keys and door handles before and after use, using the spray provided on the fence inside the gate. You may wish to use your own sanitisers and wipes.
  • Wash or sanitise hands before and after play.
  • Only 1 person to handle each piece of equipment, when setting out or taking in a lawn. The use of stop-boards between lawns is suspended.
  • All equipment to be washed after use in the buckets provided using water from the outside tap under the kitchen window.
  • Avoid using the toilets, if possible, and clean after use.
  • The kitchen and bar are out of service, so if you need refreshments, please bring them with you and take any recycling or rubbish home with you.

Thank you for your assistance during these strange times.

Message from Chairman

This is a brief note to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2021. We would normally have sent out an Annual Newsletter in December with a Calendar of events for the forthcoming year, inviting you to renew your membership and enter club competitions, etc. However, as there is so much uncertainty at the moment, we think it would be wiser to delay this until the new year. We may then have a clearer idea of what level of activity will be possible. In the meantime some winter maintenance works are in progress and we have submitted a full programme of AC and GC tournaments for inclusion in the CA’s Fixtures Book for 2021. These can be viewed on the CA’s website. Until we can resume play, please stay safe. If you have any comments or suggestions please contact Janet Kendal, Chairman, Hunstanton Croquet Club by email at chairman@hunstantoncroquetclub.co.uk or by phone on 01485 533551.
