The 2021 Ascot Cup Final took place at Hunstanton at the weekend.

"Croquet for all ages is what we are all about," says Hunstanton Croquet Club's Caroline Harper, "and this weekend we had a final played between a fifteen year old and a senior!"

The club had the honour of hosting the event at their home at Hunstanton Recreation Ground where their five fantastic lawns are the envy of clubs from around the country.
