Royal Croquet Club
24 November – 4 December 2016
Bondi Beach, NSW 2026
Bondi Beach is getting a royally fun lifestyle festival, complete with- you guessed it- croquet.
We love some good high intensity exercise, don’t get me wrong here. But we also love a good leisure activity. And in the world of sports that you can play whilst simultaneously doing other things, croquet seems to rank pretty high. It’s kind of like the new lawn bowls. Or the old lawn bowls… Not entirely sure which came first.
What is it: The Royal Croquet Club is laying down the stakes at Bondi Beach after establishing itself as a crowd favourite in Adelaide, Brisbane, and Melbourne in summers past. And if history repeats itself we’re talking pop up bars, DJ’s, local and international music acts, fashion and market stalls, health and wellness events. The crown jewel? A croquet lawn in the middle of it all. You’ll need to replenish your strength, so there will be some of Sydney’s favourite food vendors on hand to keep you well fed.
What you can expect: This festival is basically the embodiment of summer. Leave your white knit croquet sweater at home.
Will there be croquet: There will be croquet.
Given all the revelry this may be more closely classified as a drinking game than a sporting pastime. But hey, regardless of your croquet skills it is one of those everyone is a winner scenarios. It’s time to assemble your team, palm an ice cold beverage and grip your mallet. Official line-up details are still sparse at this point, so there’s not a whole lot of info. But let’s just say we’re willing to find out.
