The Lawn Club @ G&T SportsPark, a U.S. Croquet Association-sanctioned club, will start its season at 5:30 p.m. May 3 at Grace & Truth Sports Park, 373 N. Greece Road, Hilton.

The Lawn Club is open to those interested in learning either the American six-wicket game or golf croquet. Equipment is provided as well as free instruction. Newcomers are invited to play three times for free before making a decision to join the club.

Most are often surprised that official wickets are 12 inches tall and only 4 inches wide. Balls are weighted at just under 1 pound each and mallets are weighted and have square ends.

The Club also plays at 5:30 p.m. until dusk Thursdays and Saturdays.
