Inter-livery Croquet 2023
Tuesday 13 June 2023
On 10th June, 3 liverymen of the Needlemakers were joined by one of the Feltmakers for a most enjoyable day at the Inter-livery golf croquet event. There were over 60 croquet players from about 20 different livery companies, and it was almost non-stop action (this being made possible by the fact that the Sussex Croquet Club has 11 croquet greens and we were using most of them). The weather was fantastic and lunch and refreshments were provided.
Whilst the team did not win any prizes (so, sorry, no cups to go on display at Needlemakers dinners!) it really was a lovely event. Each of us knew a few of the players from other livery companies and it was all very jolly.
The main event, the Glovers Cup, was won by the Leathersellers (who also won it last year).
This was the second year that Needlemakers have taken part and I do hope that the Company will enter the event again next year. I can thoroughly recommend it.
