Merry Christmas, club members. As we are about to have a break from regular routines, here are a few reminders of what's coming up in and around the club.

Salamanca Road parking alert

Salamanca Road outside the club is now a paid parking area, seven days a week (excluding National Statutory Holidays). The signage for this, and the meters, aren't particularly obvious, but you can be sure Parking Enforcement will never be far away. 

Christmas/January calendar

Barring upcoming special events, club play can continue as usual. You can always check the Calendar on our website.

  • 27 - 30 Dec: possibly one or two lawns being used for overflow for AC Wellington Open, which is based at Wellington Croquet Club.
  • Sat 8 Jan: bring friends and family for Have a Go
  • Sat 15 - Sun 16 Jan: lawns not available, as we're hosting a tournament
  • Tue 18 Jan: Entries closed for GC Grades, which need to be played by the end of the season
  • Sat 22 - Mon 24 Jan: club competition on Monday 24 if enough interest. Email Jane Norman to let her know if you would like to play.
  • Mon 31 Jan: last day for club Don Reyland competition. Weekly Upton Cup starts at 5.30 pm

Help needed with 27 Jan corporate event

More helpers are needed to host the 27 January Forsyth Barr corporate event. These events are always great fun for all, including those of us who are hosting.

 It's a wonderful chance to introduce new people to croquet so that they enjoy themselves and - we hope - come back some day to become club members. Sign up to help on the notice in the club, or email Mary Egley to let her know if you are willing to help.


Best wishes for the holiday season.
