About Brighton Croquet Club

Brighton - a Club for all players

Brighton Croquet Club has approximately 55 members. We play social games throughout the year with our members playing Golf and Association croquet on our 3 full sized lawns.

  • Golf Croquet games: Wednesday AM and Sunday PM
  • Association Croquet games: Thursday AM and Saturday AM

We also organise special social events throughout the year, including ‘twilight’ croquet during summer.

Club competitions are held each year (available for all levels of play) and an Open Tournament for Association Croquet is held across the first 2 weekends in September.

Pennant croquet competition against other Melbourne croquet clubs is also available, as well as inter-club friendly matches.

The Club was founded in 1911 at a meeting of Brighton’s Croquet enthusiasts headed by Elizabeth Bleazby, the first female Councillor of the City of Brighton and daughter of former Premier of Victoria The Hon. Thomas Bent. They purchased a site in Male St, bordering the railway line near Middle Brighton Station.

A hundred years later we are still at the same site. The original horse paddock has long gone, but with our three lawns and newly renovated clubhouse, enthusiasm for the game is undiminished.
