Our Club

Williamstown Croquet Club was founded in 1926 and opened for play in 1928. The beautiful, historic sports pavilion was opened in 1929 and is a real feature of the Club. The wide verandah is ideal for enjoying those long summer evenings. Inside is a large air-conditioned social room, fully equipped kitchen, locker room and separate male and female toilets.

We welcome all visitors and people wishing to pursue croquet as a sport or social activity and cater for all levels. Both Association Croquet and Golf Croquet are played at our Club.

We have enough space for two full-size or four half-size lawns which can accommodate up to 32 players at a time. We also have mallets available for the use of new members, visitors and guests.

Come and Try

We have regular open sessions where you can come down and try the game and get more information about the Club.

Contact the Club Secretary for details.

Becoming a Member

You can take out an Introductory Membership for 3 months which gives you time to get a feel for the game plus get to know the Club and its Members.

If you decide to continue you can join as a Full Member which provides 7 day per week access. We also offer reduced rates for full-time students, families and non-playing social members.

To enquire about becoming a Member contact the Club Secretary or complete this Membership Enquiry form.

To apply for Membership, complete this Membership Application form and send to the Club Secretary.

Venue Hire

As well as regular Club activities, the Pavilion is available for hire for social events and meetings when not in use by members.

The venue accommodates around 50 seated and 80 standing. We also have a well equipped kitchen for food preparation and a BBQ is available for use. You will need to self-cater but we do have a BYO licence.

To enquire about booking the venue complete this Booking Enquiry form.
