Play Croquet at Chatswood Croquet Club

New members are welcome and are provided with support and training to quickly enjoy social games.

Croquet is fun for women and men of all ages, as well as being as social or competitive as you wish. We have players ranging from complete beginners to state standard.

Chatswood Croquet Club has three excellent full size grass courts in an attractive location, surrounded by trees and shrubs. We are located near the centre of Chatswood and are conveniently located for public transport and car parking.

Our clubhouse can seat 40 people and we have shaded seating beside the lawns for a chat and a cuppa between games.

Croquet is a lawn game where you hit a ball through a series of hoops with a mallet. Sounds simple, but the gap is only just large enough, ensuring a challenge for even experienced players. Come to watch or try a game. Most games are played in pairs and are quite social, but there are also opportunities to play competitively.

Anyone interested in learning the basics of croquet is invited to attend a free friendly ‘come and try’ session.  

Contact Bob Berry who is responsible for recruitment and new members on 0450 204 729 or email info@chatswoodcroquet.org.au to come & try croquet. New members and visitors are always welcome – club mallets can be borrowed for no charge.

Should you be interested in trying the game, don’t worry preparing beforehand as the ‘come and try’ session will explain what you need to know. Here is a link to a video produced for the UK Croquet Association which provides some insight into the game and those hooked on playing it.
