Larger groups as COVID restrictions ease

The Deputy Premier has announced some easing of COVID restrictions across Victoria from 11.59 pm on Thursday evening 24 June.

The detail is now available in updated Restricted Activity Directions from the Chief Health Officer

A new change for croquet is that there is no longer a maximum group size for outdoor community sport (metro Melbourne and regional). This means there is no longer a need to ensure tournaments are split into small groups. The number of people at a venue is limited by the space available and the density quotient that applies.





Croquet Victoria AGM

Croquet Victoria held its 2021 Annual General Meeting via Zoom on Monday 21 June 2021.

The positions of President, Treasurer and two Ordinary Members of Committee of Management were up for election.

Jim Clement was returned as President, Claire Keating as Treasurer, and Lynne Roberts as an Ordinary Member of Committee of Management, with Mike Cohn being elected to the remaining vacant position of Ordinary Member.




COVID: Some limitations eased

Under the most recent Victorian Government announcement, on 16 June 2021, social play and competition will be allowed across Victoria from 11.59 pm on Thursday 17 June. For details, see our revised Return to Croquet guidelines. These take into account the Chief Health Officer's Restricted Activity Directions, published on 18 June.

For social play, groups are limited to 20 in Melbourne and 50 in regional Victoria. For competition, the limit is the minimum number required to undertake the activity. Travel across Victoria is allowed.

Clubhouses are open, subject to density requirements (4 square metres per person) and group size (no more than 10 in metro Melbourne, no more than 50 in regional Victoria).




Croquet is go - with limitations

Under the most recent Victorian Government directions, updated on 12 June 2021, croquet clubs can open across Victoria. Details are provided in our revised Return to Croquet guidelines.


All clubs must use the Government QR code to check in people attending their site. A new Kiosk app is available to help check in people without a smart phone - see

Travel between metro Melbourne and the regions is prohibited (except for people who need to travel for paid work).
