Advancing Croquet in Victoria


About Croquet Victoria

We are the State Sporting Association responsible for croquet across Victoria and Southern New South Wales. Established on 18 June 1914 as the Victorian Croquet Association, we trade as Croquet Victoria.

Under our current rules, we lead and develop croquet in Victoria by coordinating and supporting Association Croquet, Golf Croquet, Ricochet and Gateball, played in 91 clubs across 13 regional associations.

Visiting the Victorian Croquet Centre

The Victorian Croquet Centre, our headquarters, is the perfect venue for your event. It is available for hire to Corporations, Businesses, Community Groups, Individuals and Family Groups for events with or without croquet.

The purpose-built facility in Cairnlea, in the western suburbs of Melbourne, features 12 full size courts and a state-of-the-art pavilion. The function area seats 200, with a licensed bar and a commercial kitchen, and overlooks manicured grass courts.

AC ranking events: Gold, Silver, Bronze

On the weekend of 3/4 March, Cairnlea hosted the annual Victorian Gold Cup, Silver and Bronze Shields.  Players are invited to these events purely on their ranking. 

The top eight available players go into the Gold Cup, the next eight into the Silver Shield, and another eight are invited to the Bronze Shield.  As one player was forced to withdraw late in the proceedings, the Bronze Shield ended with seven players.




Cairnlea Classic supports Eire Cup players

The weekend of the Vic v Vic A practice match saw a small but committed group of Association Croquet players providing support for the team.

This event has been held for the past two seasons to ensure a number of players are in attendance for the introduction of the Victorian AC Team, who will compete in the Eire Cup in South Australia in March.
