Sidmouth Croquet Club held their first competition this season for club members.
The competition was a light-hearted, friendly one-ball competition, part of a countrywide event, in aid of Myeloma UK.
Twenty-four players took part and used the event to refresh their skills and socialise with other members after the winter break.
The day was also the Queen’s birthday so the players, at lunch time, raised a toast Her Majesty.
Play continued in a jovial atmosphere in the afternoon and £150 was raised for the charity.
