Other information

Ricochet is an enjoyable social form of croquet providing low impact exercise for people of all ages and those with a wide range of physical abilities. This strategic game will keep your mind active.

You will be taught the basics of the game, laying the foundation for those who may wish to take this further. As well you will have fun in a lovely setting beside the beach in Elwood.  Your fee of $10 (for the course) will cover the use of the Club’s facility, equipment, and afternoon tea.

This is the same course that was run in 2023, so we would like to encourage people who have not previously attended to participate

REQUIREMENTS: No experience is necessary.  Flat-soled shoes are essential.

TUTOR: Judith is an experienced croquet player with an AIS (Australian Institute of Sport) general coaching qualification. She will be supported by other players, some of whom are U3A members. Judith delivered this course in 2023 and had 20 attendees

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
