In 2015-16 Euroa Croquet Club has 20+ members. Croquet is played on two full- or four half-sized lawns. Membership fee is $110, green fees are $4 for members and $5 for non-members. There is plenty of equipment for visitors' use and everyone is very welcome to contact us with regard to using the facilities.

Sheep Dip Cup (Euroa-Mooroopna)

This impressive silver trophy was donated in 2000 by Euroa members and Association Croquet players Max (dec) and Irene Brook. Its base bears the words "Hart's Immunol Sheep Dip Cup", reflecting the occupation of its sponsors. Played annually against Mooroopna, the match lapsed after a few years but was reinstated in 2011, now as a Golf Croquet challenge. To date, it has been won by Mooroopna in 2011 and 2014 and Euroa in 2012 and 2013.

Sister clubs battle for pennant

Euroa and Nagambie, both in the Shire of Strathbogie, enjoy a friendly rivalry within the Goulburn Valley Croquet Association. In the 2011 Pennant competition they were the top two teams in Division 4, when Euroa was beaten by Nagambie by one hoop in extra time!

Winter Solstice Challenge (Euroa-Nagambie)

An old, wooden croquet ball formerly belonging to Nagambie member Rita Atkins (dec) was mounted on a block of Tasmanian huon pine by local resident Russell Hurren to form this trophy. The inaugural match between Nagambie and Euroa was played on Friday 29 June 2012. Results to date are Euroa in 2012, a draw in 2013, and Euroa again in 2014 and 2015.

Types of croquet

Like most long-established clubs, Euroa began (in 1906) with Association Croquet. Golf Croquet was introduced late in the 20th century and members have also experimented with other varieties such as Aussie Croquet and Gateball.
