About us

Where

Maryborough VRI Croquet Club was established in 1935 and officially opened on 14 November, 1936. Originally there was only one court, but now we have one A Grade and one B Grade court. The Croquet Courts are situated at 32 Station Street in a beautiful setting overlooked by the the Stately Maryborough Railway Station and near the new Shopping Complex. To paraphrase Mark Twain, "Maryborough is a Railway Station with a Croquet Club attached".

When

We currently play Golf Croquet and are very happy to welcome any visitors to the area. We play on Wednesdays and Saturdays 9.30a.m. for 10a.m. during summer/autumn. In winter/spring play on Saturday is in the afternoon at 1.00p.m. for 1.30p.m.

The Club supports two Pennant Teams with Members competing in the Northern District Golf Croquet Pennant Competition again this year. In 2013 one Team got into the Semi Finals. Each year we compete with Maldon for the Challenge Cup. Next November we will challenge them again.

Our Season's Opening is held in September.

New members are always welcome to come along and try Croquet. Our members are more than happy to help show them how to play.

Construction of New Croquet Courts

During 2010 we played on the local Lawn tennis courts whilst our new lawns were being reconstructed, and an underground watering system was put in. Mike Lovell, who worked tirelessly towards the reconstruction of the lawns, received a well deserved Life Membership at our Christmas Break-up on 18th December, 2010.The Official Opening of our renovated lawns on 5th February,2011. We are now playing on the new Lawns and don't they make a difference.

Bert

The grounds committee have just erected a new shed to store our mowers and other equipment. BERT'S SHED. Our eldest member, Bert Walker,94, cut a yellow ribbon and officially opened our new Equipment shed on Saturday,27th August, 2011. Sadly, Bert passed away six days after the opening of the shed he had lobbied so hard to bring about. A sign has now been erected on "Bert's Shed" in memory of him and his drive to improve facilities for our club and in many other clubs in Maryborough. He will be sadly missed by us and many others.

Welcoming other Clubs within the Area

Members of the local Probus Club play once a month. Other local Clubs have also been invited to come along and enjoy the amenities our club offers.

Life Members
