History: Established in 1912 as the Eastern Park Bowling & Croquet Club, the 1st Croquet lawn was laid down in 1919 under the direction of Mr John L Gibson,for the benefit of wives and lady relatives. The "Eastern Park Croquet Club" was inaugurated on 12th February 1920 by Mrs F Ritchie the President. In 1922 the Club name was altered to the "Geelong Eastern Park Ladies Croquet Club". The Club was opened to gentlemen members and the name of the Club reverted to "Eastern Park Croquet Club" in 1961. 2020 sees our 100th Centenary and we will be hosting an A/C & G/C day and a Fun Day on 1st March with local dignitaries and counsellors attending. Also be playing fun games

The Club is situated on Crown Land and is on the Victorian Heritage Register as part of the Eastern Park and Botanical Gardens listing. The Historical Club house was originally a small shelter built for storage and the provision of afternoon teas. This was enlarged several times over ensuing years. The City of Greater Geelong recently provided 2 grants which have been used to paint the Clubhouse and renovate the kitchen and fences.
