We are looking forward to welcoming BRA members and friends to a fun, family day out, at our annual Queen’s Birthday Party. This year we are back at the same venue, where there is an adequate sized lawn to play croquet. There is a covered terrace, where we can sit in comfort to watch the game while waiting to play our turn. We are honoured again this year with the presence of The President of the Swiss Croquet Association, Mr. Dave Underhill who organises us into teams and explains how this very British traditional game is played. No need to know how to play in order to participate in a team. Bring your own picnic & drinks (Gas grill to BBQ meat or sausages available) The fully equipped canteen has a kitchen, tables and chairs for 40+ people inside and out.
