Swindon Croquet Club has unveiled a plan to double its number of lawns.
The club, formed 35 years ago, aims to bring its total to six as part of Swindon Borough Council’s development of the Moredon Sports and Wellbeing Hub.
It says the move is in response to the growing popularity of the sport, and will enable it to host regional, national and international tournaments.
The club has long been committed to supporting local community groups, and provides adapted equipment to accommodate wheelchair users and partially-sighted players.
More than 70 groups have attended, including Football in the Community, Parkinson’s UK and a variety of sheltered housing and school groups.
The club has requested £250,000 from the borough council’s project budget of £3.5m.
