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.

Ballarat and District Season Opening
The 2018-19 Season Opening of the Ballarat & District Croquet Association (B&DCA) took place on Saturday 1 September.
Graciously the rain stopped long enough for Catherine King MP to do the honours of making the first hoop under the watchful eye of Brian Reither, VP of the B&DCA. The Courier newspaper photographer captured the moment.
Victorians victorious in GC ISS
A narrow win against Western Australia on the final day of competition saw Victoria retrieve the GC Interstate Shield.
The competition was very tight. Matches were best-of-two, and in all the tests there were many 1:1 draws - overall, more than a third of the matches were drawn (119 out of 300).
Selectors Invitation Wrap-up.
The Second Selectors Invitation Tournament was recently held at Cairnlea.
It was run over two days with 31 players competing in four round robin blocks followed by finals. Entry was by way of invitation and these were issued to a range of established and rapidly developing players. It was really pleasing to have two players under the age of 21 in the field.
