The Brimbank Croquet Club is extending an invitation to the local community to try their hand at croquet.

To mark the beginning of Seniors Month which runs throughout October, the club will be hosting a free, come and try day event for locals to learn to play croquet as well as meet and make new friends.

Brimbank Croquet Club member, Sue Pattison said croquet is a sport for all ages and fitness levels. The low-impact sport is particularly appealing to an older demographic as it is played on a flat ground at a comfortable pace, with minimal bending required.

“Our come and try day is open to anyone and everyone. Mainly the people that play croquet are retirees, but croquet is something that anyone and any age group can play and enjoy,” she said.

The Brimbank Croquet Club uses the courts of the Victorian Croquet association based in Cairnlea, and is always open to welcoming new members to join the club.

The come and try day event will take place on Tuesday, October 3 from 9.30am at 65 Nobel Banks Drive in Cairnlea.

Morning tea will be provided, followed by a sausage sizzle lunch.

Registration is required. RSVP by Thursday, September 28, through text 0409 931 871 or email
