Club Outline

The Castlemaine Croquet Club's history is a little obscure, but the Club began to play at its current location in 1924. It is an integral part of the Castlemaine Bowling Club. There is only one lawn, which makes life difficult when it comes to running tournaments. Both Association and Golf Croquet are played with several players playing both forms of the game. Current membership (2015) is 31 and growing. New members are very welcome.


Coaching is available to any new member, existing member or prospective member should they so desire. Castlemaine now has two accredited coaches of Association Croquet: Nigel Harland and Ian Campbell. Please contact the club if you require coaching and times can be arranged.

Castlemaine Maldon Golf Croquet Challenge

The first Castlemaine Maldon Golf Croquet Challenge was held in brilliant sunshine on the first day of Spring 2015. Maldon was the outright winner on the day, 13 games to 3, and took home the new trophy (kindly made by the Maldon Men's Shed). This event will be held twice yearly in the first weeks of Spring and the first weeks of Autumn. Below are the two teams gathered outside the Castlemaine clubrooms and the winning Maldon team of Cheryl, Steve, Cheryl, Ray, Theo, Leo, Tony and Lillian.
