Special Events

We hosted the 2014-15 and 2015-2016 Special Olympics Bocce Games. Our grounds now boast 2 ramps, to make accessing the club rooms and courts much easier. Over 300 people including over 100 Athletes attended the 2 events. The weather and people were just great - loads of fun! Thanks to everyone who attended and helped, especially the ladies in the kitchen, who made the days so special.

We also hosted the 2014-15 Victorian Teachers Games. Teachers get to select what games they want to play over 2 weeks. Croquet proved to be a very successful choice. Ballarat had the honour the following year.

History of Eaglehawk Croquet Club

The Eaglehawk Croquet Club was founded in 1909, in premises vacated by the Eaglehawk Bowling Club. There are no records for the years 1910-1942, but the clubhouse was unlined with no electricity or water.

During World War II memberships dropped to just 7 members, however between 1943/46 membership increased to 23. Electricity was connected to the Clubhouse in 1947. During the years 1955-58 the club rooms were rebuilt and enlarged.

1959/63 Life Memberships were presented and the club celebrated its 50th birthday with sister clubs and past members.

Golf Croquet was introduced in 1975 and was played on Wednesdays (as is still the case today). The club celebrated its 90th birthday with the oldest member at that time - Nell Mitchell- cutting the cake and a stained glass window was also unveiled.

We play Association, Golf Croquet and Golf Croquet Pennant and golf croquet membership is increasing.
