I started playing Golf Croquet in April 1997, when I joined Tynemouth Castle and Priory Golf Croquet Club. Tynemouth Castle and Priory is an English Heritage site.
In 1998 I also joined Tyneside Croquet Club and took up Association Croquet. My current handicap is 6, having once been a 2.5, and I have a handicap of 2 for Golf Croquet.
