Carefully manicured and level lawns are an essential part of the game of croquet.


which six-wicket and golf croquet will be played and will at- tract players from all over the US and Canada. After the games, there will be receptions featuring such things as steamed crabs, rockfish and oysters, as well as red meats, poultry, and veggies for the vegans. White points out that for many people the social aspect of the sport is equally important as the actual game. White admits he wants to play well, but enjoys the social aspect too. He says croquet combines the challenges of chess, pool and golf, all in one non-impact sport played outdoors. Croquet is a great low-impact exercise for both the body and the mind.


The lawns are a full-time job for the grounds keepers at the CBCC. They use mowers specially designed for golf courses to keep the Bermuda grass trimmed to 0.15 inches. It must be mowed three times a week and watered daily in summer. White says the lawn is the key to the game of croquet. The lawns at the CBCA are world class and competitive with the best in the United States.


The Chesapeake Bay Croquet Club in Hartfield is a fascinat-


ing and elegant venue on the way to being one of the best croquet clubs in the country. They built it and people are coming. It is well worth a trip to see how a game that has its origins in history going back to the 1300s in places like Ire- land, England, France and Italy is played. No one is entirely sure where it all started. However, its very longevity tends to prove that it has been enjoyed by men and women of all levels of socioeconomic standing for centuries. It is called croquet, but the real name of the game is fun for adults of all ages. For more details, email Macey White at maceywhite@ gmail.com, or find the Chesapeake Bay Croquet Club on Facebook. Get information about the sport of croquet online at www.croquetamerica.com/. White says come on down to the Chesapeake Bay Croquet Club and try your hand at play- ing the game. You too might, as Macey White did, find what is obviously a great joy in life. The good news is White and the members of the Chesapeake Bay Croquet Club are eager to share that joy and welcome visitors on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons starting at 1:00 p.m.H
