On Wednesday morning I dropped by the croquet club to check out what some of the town’s least well-know athletes were doing. In a sport that demands high concentration and wily strategy as well as extreme skill I found a bunch of chilled-out characters dressed in unashamedly sartorial splendour. Groovy t-shirts. Blue jeans. Hipster sandals. The latest in “active-wear” sneakers. This bunch not only play good… they look good!
Anyone looking for some sports action that is more focused on skill and intellect than brute strength or cardiovascular fitness should consider paying a visit to the Byron Bay Croquet Club. Not only are the folks there friendly but they will let you wear anything that you think is cool.
