We charge a green fee of $5 a day - for local residents, though, your first session is free.

If you are playing gateball you will need to check with Essendon and Kew for their green fees.

AC beginners coaching is available every Monday evening from 5 pm. Book with Kate via email if you'd like to come -

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

March update


In line with Government advice, the club is closed as from 24 March. We’ll reopen when the crisis is past. Moreland Council will be continuing to mow our lawns in the meantime.
