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 91 clubs across 13 regional associations.
