Croquet Temporarily Suspended

The use of the quads for croquet is currently suspended. 

BIJxEv9CIAAxBcHThe quads took a bit of a battering this winter and, because of the nice weather this week and subsequent use, they are in need of some intense TLC.

Pusey Quad and Hayward Quad are still open to use as per normal (Pusey: No walking across, no playing on, but sitting or lying on it is permitted. Hayward: Enjoy, but no ball sports) but please refrain from playing croquet on any of them.

If, however, you have a cuppers match or are a cuppers captain hoping to do some training please contact Adrian Roche (Head Gardner: adrian.roche@keble.ox.ac.uk; 07817 863841) to seek his permission to play on the quads.

Hopefully this will just be a short term fix while the grass has time to get back into fighting shape.

At least the weather is not taunting us about it!

Trinity Term begins!

It may seem like the darkness of Hilary still looms over us all as we approach college exams but let that be no reason for not celebrating the arrival of Trinity Term!

Tonight Keble Bar reopens at 6pm with the return of a summer favourite – Pimms.

Liddon, Pusey, and Hayward are now open for croquet – just go to the Porters’ Lodge and get the kits from the Sports’ Cupboard.

And, not forgetting, punts can now be booked from the Porters’ Lodge for free!582390_10150847265058871_680212871_n
