SSC Newspaper : September 2012
September 2012 2 Strathfield Scene Welcome 5 minutes with... How long Have you been playing croquet? I only started at the beginning of this year. How did you get started? I saw an advertisement in the local newspaper inviting players from the community to come and try the sport. wHy did you start playing croquet? I wanted to try something different and I have played a lot of sports in my life. I was previously an A-grade golf player and I used to compete quite fiercely. When I was younger, I participated in little athletics as well as hockey. People have misconceptions that croquet is only limited to older people but there is a lot of thinking and tactics behind the sport. wHat’s been tHe most cHallenging tHing about learning croquet? Learning the different strategies. It’s an extremely tactical game and though you might be playing with your friends, at the end of the day, you have to knock them out to win. wHat is your role as club captain? To encourage more people to join the club and to organise social games and tournaments. We’re hoping to get younger people on board and we’ve started getting a great response. We have been contacting the local colleges and we’ve been getting students from the Australian Catholic University. Over three days, around 100 students came for a trial day. are tHey mainly locals tHat come and play? We’ve got people who come as far as from Penrith who come and play with us. We have an old and established club and croquet is becoming a more popular sport. STYLE LOUNGE ON TOUR! Time for a new look?
