Our beautiful club house is a fantastic venue for hire.

OUR HISTORY

The Graceville Croquet Club was formed in March 1919, at a meeting of twelve women in the Parish Hall in Sherwood.

As the club had no lawns, members lent their lawns for games.

Croquet was an exclusive ladies sport and men did not become members until the 1950’s.

In May 1920 the club obtained a lease of 3498 square metres in Graceville Memorial Park.

The club house was the first building to be erected in the park.

If you would like to find out more about the history of our club, we are happy to email you “A Short History’’ and you are most welcome to arrange a time to view the wonderful memorabilia of days past, put together by some of our talented club historians.

Graceville Croquet Club is proud to be associated with the Chelmer, Graceville, Sherwood, Corinda and Oxley Community.

We are proud of our history and excited for our future.

We are a modern club with a long tradition.

GRACEVILLE CROQUET CLUB IS AN EXCELLENT CLUB TO BELONG TO.
