“Oh the Courts outside are frightful
But the hoops and balls delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
We practice jump shots in the snow”
Playing Croquet at Pendle is always a pleasure but even more so when the Pennines have their annual covering of snow. Paul Rigge had fun knocking a few balls around and even did some interesting coaching on Jump Shots on the skippy slippy surface.
By the end of the day it was announced the area was to be placed in Tier 4 – restricting the Pendle croquet world to only two players per court for the foreseeable future.
