Social programme

Indoor croquet at Bishop Burton
Winter sport – a session of indoor croquet at Bishop Burton

There are a number of social events through the year. We hold a winter lunch, a spring dinner and a summer party to which all members and their partners are very welcome.

At Finals Day, we mark the end of the playing season with a bring-and-share lunch, the finals of some of the internal competitions, and plenty of opportunity for relaxed conversation: this is always an enjoyable day.

More informally, each month after one of the club sessions we meet for a simple bring-and-share lunch.  These are
on the second Monday of each month during the playing season.

During the winter months, we are trialling winter play when lawn conditions permit. There are opportunities to gather informally for Meet and Eat at a local hostelry; fortnightly strategic board games mornings to which all are welcome; Club walks for those who wish to join in; social bridge sessions; occasional pub runs; social petanque; Club newsletters; and a lively Club WhatsApp social group.  We also play indoor croquet on the Yorkshire Federation croquet carpets at Bishop Burton Village Hall, near Beverley, as we await the coming of spring and the start of the main playing season.
