Season continues on Thursdays

After a successful initial season, croquet has returned to East Frankfort Park on Thursdays.

Two new courts have been laid out in East Frankfort Park and are open to everyone. The courts are adjacent to the tennis courts and the sand volleyball court.

Jacki Farney is managing the Thursday evening sessions, which began May 8.

Farney said the newer versions of croquet play faster and have fewer rules. The updated game has only seven rules, making it quick to learn and more fun to play. 

Experienced players, newer players and people who just want to try out the game are welcome. All equipment will be provided and copies of the rules will be posted. Play begins at 6 p.m.

For more information, call Farney at 502-330-1907.

Doubles league starts Monday

The Frankfort Parks, Recreation & Historic Sites Department will offer a social doubles tennis league beginning Monday and Tuesday at the Franklin County High School courts.

The open format, co-ed league will be open to adults and varsity high school players who want to play. Each Monday or Tuesday at 6 p.m. all players will assemble at the FCHS courts.

Players will rate themselves as beginners, intermediate players or advanced players, depending on experience. Players of comparable experience and ability will be paired randomly and will play another similarly matched pair. At the end of the first set, players swap partners and play another set.

Beginners and advanced players will play Mondays this year and intermediate players will be on court Tuesdays.

The Park’s fee for entry is $25 and is payable the first night a player participates. For more details, contact Arnett at 502-382-8542.
