Anyone for Croquet?

Air Ambulance Crew drop in for a game of Croquet They often say that a turf managers day can be varied.

Usually it is the battling with the weather, trying to get the playing surface ready in time for the players. Whether it is preparing a football pitch or in this case a croquet lawn, working around a helicopter poses a bit of a challenge - with the added benefit that there was no need to drag brush the dew off that particular day as the helicopter did what usually takes an hour in a few minutes!

Now we are all aware of the importance that an air ambulance can have in getting an unwell individual quickly to a medical team and hospital and surprisingly they do not receive much government funding for their great work which is a bit pants really. Visit their web site.

The Grounds Team at the Phyllis Court Club based in Henley, have been working hard putting their 4 croquet lawns to bed last autumn and have suddenly benefited from seeing green grass once again after the snow thaw. You can see that the lawns look in great shape and the Grounds Team are now working to a croquet maintenance calendar and croquet maintenance schedule provided by Mike Seaton of The Lawn Company following extensive discussions last year.

The Lawn Company are recognised by The Croquet Association as being able to provide croquet lawn advice, service and supply of lawn care products to croquet clubs. Their work at Phyllis Court Club is a good example of their efforts. They have helped the new Grounds Team get to grips with the annual croquet lawn maintenance and renovation tasks and going forward there is a clear and concise plan to work to. No mention of helicopters though.

If you are a Secretary or Member of a Croquet Club and require assistance with the same, you can arrange a Turf Consultancy Visit and take it from there. Infact if you help manage any sporting facility that is in need of some 'TLC' then you have come to the right place.
