Red Hatters find fun at Southport Croquet Club

THE newly formed group of Red Hat Society, based at Seachange Resort at Arundel, enjoyed a very happy time at Southport Croquet Club on July 15.

These 26 members brightened up the dull skies with their smiling faces and happy laughter - as well as their colourful red hats and purple clothing - says croquet club president Barbara Northcott.

"Guided by experienced coaches from the Southport Croquet Club, each player was given a mallet and taught important skills like hitting a ball, running a hoop, stun shots, blocking and other tactical considerations," Barbara said.

"This was followed by several games of doubles and some of singles. Many players were showing a very good aptitude for croquet. A return visit was stated to be on the list of 'must-do' activities.

"After two hours experiencing the challenges of golf croquet, the group were provided with a very delicious lunch and more opportunities to socialise."
