Nelson Bay Croquet Club

Nelson Bay Croquet Club has been established for over 20 years. Membership is open to all who are interested in the game.

Prospective members, with or without prior experience of playing croquet, are most welcome and are advised to contact the club to discuss membership.

Visiting players from other croquet clubs are always welcome, and can usually play without prior notice. Simply arrive half an hour before play is due to start and introduce yourself. However, if you wish to play in one of the designated full court playing sessions, it is best to phone beforehand to check availability.

Members play all three internationally recognised forms of croquet (Golf, Ricochet and Association). The Club plays both social and competitive games six days a week on two professionally maintained full sized courts. Each of these courts can be used to play two half-court games, which enables a maximum of thirty two players at any one time.

We have a small clubhouse with attached covered outdoor area, ample tables and chairs and tea and coffee making facilities. Male and female toilets are located in a nearby building.

The clubs normal playing times are;

  • Monday        afternoon- Association
  • Tuesday       morning- Golf, afternoon-Ricochet
  • Wednesday  morning- Full-court Golf
  • Thursday      morning- Golf, afternoon- full-court Golf singles
  • Friday           morning- full-court Golf
  • Saturday       morning- Golf, afternoon - full court Golf

Morning Golf croquet sessions start at 9am and run for about three hours. Each session involves three games, with a break for morning tea between the second and third games. Afternoon sessions generally start at 12.30pm or 3pm during daylight savings.

The club has five qualified coaches to help develop members playing skills and tactics. We also have an active program of social events including monthly BBQ's.
