We have a few guest spots available on 13 July, as some of the regular club members are on holiday.
We're currently playing at Brockington over the summer, from 7:30pm-9:30pm. If you're interested in coming along please contact Raheel or Andy - details on our Contact us page.
Due to the recent high attendance on club nights (Thursdays), we are temporarily having to suspend the option for guests to play at the club.
Although we are sorry to have to do this, as we always like to welcome people to the club, we have to put our paid up members first and ensure that they get court time. It is a sign of the success and popularity of the club.
We will of course keep this under review and assess what option we have going forward
Thanks you as always for your support and interest in playing at Croakers
Apologies to all those who turned up tonight at our new venue at Ellesmere College and did not get to play.
We have got to the bottom of the issue which has been resolved and club night will resume next Thursday 19:30 - 21:30 at Ellesmere College.
Thank you and apologies again.
Our last club night at Brockington will be on Thursday 26 August.
Home matches are normally played on a Monday evening from 7:30 pm and from October 2021 will be played at Ellesmere College.
From Thursday 2 September 2021 onwards we will be playing at Ellesmere College:
40 Braunstone Lane East
The AGM will take place on Monday 23 August at the Old Vicarage Pub in Whetstone on Enderby Road, starting at 7.30pm.
If you are unable to make the AGM but have strong views about the future of our club, please contact Raheel so he can share them with everyone.
Mixed 2 travelled to Mundella looking to maintain their good start to the season with 3 more scratch pairings.
They were greeted with the news that the opposition only had 2 pairs meaning a 3-0 advantage before a shuttle was hit.
However, this advantage was soon threatened, playing with the dreaded plastics, as Jed/Elaine & Pete/Vicky were unable to capitalise on good positions & lost their opening rubbers.
Tom/Anisa then restored the 2 rubber advantage with a fine victory in their debut mixed league match.
However, the next 2 rubbers were both lost meaning the scores were tied at 4-4 with 1 rubber remaining.
Tom/Anisa lost the 1st end but stormed back brilliantly to take the next 2 both to 15 meaning a 5-4 victory.
A brilliant performance from this pair which can only bode well for the future.
The next match is home to Melton OG on 21st November.
Croakers Mixed 2 kicked off their new season with a home fixture against Oadby on Monday evening.
Following last seasons disastrous campaign, a revamped team was fielded with 3 players, Harry, Elaine & Vicky all making their Croakers league debuts.
All acquitted themselves superbly alongside the experienced heads of Jed, David & Samira with Croakers triumphing 9-0.
It was a closer affair that the scoreline suggested with several games going to 3 sets but Croakers greater consistency told in the end.
Let’s hope we can continue in the same vein throughout the season & bounce back in style.
Well done to all concerned.
Next match is away against Mundella on 9th November.
After three weeks of resting and enjoying the lovely British summer the new season is here and start on Thursday 25th August.
We are playing all of our club nights at Brockington College on Thursdays from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. Our home league matches will continue to be played at Rolleston Primary School on Mondays from 7.00pm and Brockington College on Thursdays from 7.30pm.
