Other weeks, gateball practice is from 1 pm to 3 pm at either Kew or Essendon Croquet Clubs.
Contact Philip Brown ( for details of sessions and venues.

We charge a green fee of $5 a day - for local residents, though, your first session is free.
At our 2016 Annual General Meeting we decided not to charge members a green fee.
If you are playing gateball you will need to check with Essendon and Kew for their green fees.

In 2016 we ran beginner courses in Golf Croquet and Association Croquet.
Our first GC beginners course for 2017 has now finished. This is run in conjunction with U3A Moreland. If you'd like to join the next course, do get in touch via our email,
AC beginners coaching is available every Monday night from 7 pm.

We were involved in

  • four beginners courses
  • training for GC referees, led by Shirley Hallinan (2 members participated in this)
  • construction and planting of a new garden
  • laser levelling and top dressing of the lawns
  • a revived Monday evening festivity with meal and AC coaching

A new section of this website...
Jenny and Chris Clarke, of NZ, are constantly extending a wonderful resource for GC and AC croquet players. See

Why mallet sports?

Brunswick MSC encourages members to learn different versions of the game: golf, association, and gateball. Gateball is a fast moving team game, golf croquet is sociable, association combines billiards and chess on grass (if you like pool, you'll really take to association croquet).

Like to give croquet a go?

Do drop by! We're a friendly lot and we're keen to encourage new members. Check out our YouTube clip! made by Angelo Butera...
Members pay a club membership sub plus dues for affiliation with the Australian and Victorian Croquet Associations (covers insurance) - not required if you already pay this via another club.
You can join online via our SurveyMonkey form, or just come along to the club and sign up.

We have a Facebook group where you can check out current news...

Looking for competition, or a social game?

Brunswick includes members who enjoy competing in tournaments and competitions while others come along for a social game and don't want to enter competitions. Our aim is for us all to value and support each other. Seems to be working well.

We celebrate success! Congratulations to Bill Hadden who has just won the Victorian Selectors Invitational Silver Medal for Div 1 AC players. Well done Bill.

We also enjoy ourselves, most recently at our inaugural Annual Dinner, where John van der Touw spoke on his croquet career. See the pics on our Facebook page
