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 91 clubs across 13 regional associations.

Visiting the Victorian Croquet Centre

The Victorian Croquet Centre, our headquarters, is the perfect venue for your event. It is available for hire to Corporations, Businesses, Community Groups, Individuals and Family Groups for events with or without croquet.

The purpose-built facility in Cairnlea, in the western suburbs of Melbourne, features 12 full size courts and a state-of-the-art pavilion. The function area seats 200, with a licensed bar and a commercial kitchen, and overlooks manicured grass courts.
