The next generation of croquet players hit the field

TWEED Heads public school Year 2 kids headed down to the Tweed Heads Croquet club as part of their past and the present assignment for their socials studies unit.

"We are learning about games that families played in the past to present day," teacher Marilyn Coverdale said.

The Croquet club on hearing this invited the class down to play and have some lessons from the players.

With the help from club members the students were able to learn about the game and even got to play.

Student Auburn Byrnes who has played before thinks it's a very good game and she is happy to be playing with her school friends.

"We were talking at school on how to get the ball through the hoop," Auburn said.

"We were also learning about manners like how to say please and thank you."

The Croquet Club is open to the public by appointment,  phone 07 55367019
