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.

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.

Close finishes in GC President's Eights
One of the most important events on the ACA Calendar – the Golf Croquet President’s Eights – was held at Cairnlea from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 February. Players from all states and territories where croquet is played gathered to compete.
The first three eights are arranged by the players’ grade. There is also a separate eight for women. The format for play is a round robin event with players playing a best of three match. As we had only eight lawns available all matches were double banked.
