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.

Kew Croquet Club held its Division 1 and 2 tournament this last week-end.

Clubs lead the way in promoting junior croquet

A number of clubs around Croquet Victoria have been having success in working to encourage juniors to play croquet.

Casterton CC are in the lead, with 13 junior members, many of them now having played every Saturday morning in an established and sponsored GC competition. Five Casterton juniors played in the Under 21 GC Nationals earlier this year - they were very satisfied with their showing.
