Fish Hoek Croquet Club is situated in the picturesque Fish Hoek valley, on the Cape Peninsula some 40km south of Cape Town. Golf Croquet is played. There are two full sized courts and a small club house. Regular club playing days are Tuesday and Saturday afternoons from 1:30 pm, and Thursday mornings at 9:00 am when team practice takes priority. Our members range from those with enviably low handicaps who participate regularly in competitions, to social players who enjoy an afternoon in the sun with good company.
Members and Visitors:
The Club has approximately 40 members, about half of whom participate regularly in local and National competitions and tournaments. New members (there is an annual membership fee) and visitors are welcome. Visitors’ green fees are R25, which includes tea. We have suspended the wearing of white clothing due to the water shortage and constant washing required to keep them clean!
War Tomes result 14 March: Fish Hoek beat Kelvin Grove 6 – 3 and by 58 hoops to 45. Well done to Wayne, Jeannie, Anneke and Mariana.
The club has had their application approved to obtain treated water for our lawns. Please note that this will be non-potable water and is classified as “treated effluent”. As such, members will need to exercise caution. No bare feet and please wash your hands after play.
The Open Doubles championship was won by Jeannie and Wayne Cotton (pictured below receiving their trophy). Runners-up were Sheena and Roly Hutchings.
