Looking for something fun to do outside this summer, while staying safe and detached? Croquet might just be the solution you’re looking for!
Croquet can best be described as a sport that combines shot-making in billiards with strategy in chess, but played on the lawn. Since you will not work up a sweat while playing, it is very conducive to refreshment or snack while playing, making for a very enjoyable evening.
The Buffalo Croquet Club is accepting a limited number of new teams for the Buffalo Croquet League that takes place Thursday evenings at Delaware Park, for 10 weeks beginning July 16e until September 17e.
There are only 10 slots available for teams of 2 (plus alternates for itineraries) to enter the competition. The entry fee is $100 per team and teams are accepted on a first come, first served basis. A waiting list will be made for registrations where the registration fee has not been received before July 16the.
The club provides all the necessary equipment and instruction so players who are interested but completely new to the game are encouraged to sign up. The first week will be an educational week to familiarize players with the equipment, rules and formalities of the game, with the competition starting the following week, culminating in the play-offs in September.
The croquet courts are lit and the game starts at 7pm each week and lasts into the evening, with each game lasting about 1 hour, making it a great option to get outside and beat the heat this summer.
For those who would like to sign up or learn more about the croquet competition, send an email to email@example.com or check out the Croquet Club Instagram page @buffalo_croquet_club
We hope to see you on the lawns this summer!
