Is croquet a game or a sport? 
The answer is the same as it would be for golf inasmuch as if you knock
about in the garden it is a game but if you play seriously and competitively
 in matches, leagues and even internationally it is definitely a sport.
The Bears Croquet Club is now preparing for the new season and has space
 for new members.
The club has young and old members from beginners through to more
experienced players with some playing at an international standard. 
The club enters leagues with matches played across the South-West.
Croquet is a game suitable for all and needs little physical strength but certainly
will challenge the brain. 
If you would like to try this interesting, competitive game that can be learnt
quickly but take years to master, come an meet us on Tuesdays between
2.00 and 7.30 p.m.  Equipment will be provided but please wear a pair of trainers
or flat soled shoes.The croquet court is situated near the tennis courts in front
of the main university buildings.
