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.

Students shine at inter-school comp
Goulburn Valley CA recently held an Inter-school Golf Croquet Tournament sponsored by the Goulburn Murray Credit Union.
This inaugural event was so well received by the students participating that they christened Golf Croquet the “ROCK AND ROLL” of the discipline! There was cheering and hugging after good shots and even though a number of the school teams had only been able to practise for a couple of weeks, it was amazing to see some of the shots they performed!
It all started when John James and Ian Tainsh from the Deniliquin Croquet Club commenced teaching Golf Croquet to quite a few classes from Deniliquin High School, organized by teacher Peter Rae. They really became quite skilled at the game and began looking for some competition to play against.
Association Silver and Bronze Medals
The VCA AC Silver and Bronze Medal events were held at Cairnlea over the weekend.
The weather was great, the courts in excellent condition and the events were very competitive. What more can you ask?

Victorian Open AC Singles
This year's AC Open Singles attracted quality players from across Australia, and every state was represented in the finals.
