About Croquet Victoria

We are the State Sporting Association responsible for croquet across Victoria and Southern New South Wales. Established on 18 June 1914 as the Victorian Croquet Association Inc., we trade as Croquet Victoria.

Under our current rules, we lead and develop croquet in Victoria by coordinating and supporting Association Croquet, Golf Croquet, Ricochet and Gateball, played in 90 clubs across 13 regional associations.

VCA Bronze Medal (AC) at Shepparton

For the second year in a row the VCA Bronze Medal was held at Shepparton.  The courts there are in excellent condition and the members of the club made us all most welcome. 

The large spectator group was treated to some excellent croquet.  Robert Fletcher was in fine form on Saturday and executed three triple peels and one sextuple peel in his four games.  Some tactical games between the other players held the attention of the onlookers.  The weather was hot, the courts were great and the players thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to show their skills.
