CERN Croquet Club

Croquet Club

Under New Management

The CERN Croquet Club was formed in 1982 by a small band of ex-pat Britons under the Presidency of Norman Eatough. Over the intervening 40 years it has steadily expanded in nationality, in geography and in scope. The number of players has steadily increased as well as the spread of nationalities represented. The club was at the heart of the formation of the Swiss Croquet Association which led to similar clubs being created in Sion and in Zurich. And the sports of Lawn Bowls and Gateball (Japanese Croquet) have been added.

Now, after 40 years of loyal service, Norman has handed the reins of the club, in other words, the President’s chair, to David Underhill. At the recent club AGM, Norman was presented with a statuette depicting a croquet mallet and a plaque commemorating his 40 years in charge. We wish Norman a long and happy retirement although we hope he will continue to play an active part in the croquet activities.
