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, 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 92 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

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.

95 not out
Elsternwick Croquet Club celebrated the 95th birthday of member Ruth Puryer at an afternoon tea on Sunday 15 July.
Ruth has been playing croquet for 35 years, taking it up when she retired, and is still sprightly, cheery and an active player. Possibly the positive effects of 35 years playing Association Croquet!
Thanks to Mike Cohn
On Tuesday 17 July Mike Cohn attended his final meeting as Immediate Past President of Croquet Victoria, and was presented with a plaque honouring his eleven years of service to Council.
Mike served as a member of the Committee of Management; as Vice President; and as President for nearly six years, to August 2016.
Players battle the elements at Morwell
The idea that croquet is a nice genteel game in the sun followed by cucumber sandwiches in the club house was blown out of the water at Morwell's GC Handicap Doubles at the weekend.
The wind blew and the heavens opened as the players arrived two by two. There was no ark in sight, but it was a definite possibility that one would be needed before the end of the tournament.
In true croquet fashion players rugged up, donned their wet gear and took to the courts.
The Dot Dickson Challenge June 2018
It was perfect weather for 67 Golf Croquet players on Thursday 21 June at Cairnlea for the second Dot Dickson Challenge of 2018.
This fun One Day Challenge was started by Dot Dickson some years ago so any players from clubs around Victoria could get together to play croquet while enjoying the facilities at Cairnlea.
For some, it was their first visit to VCC and maybe the first time they have played outside their own clubs. Great to see all 12 courts played on all day, most double banked.
A great tribute to Dot Dickson who passed away just one week before this special day.
