Nelson Bay Croquet Club has just over 100 members, both males and females, across a wide age range. 


We play croquet several times each week, weather permitting.  We mostly play Golf Croquet, but there are also a number of members who play Ricochet and Association.


The club will have as of early 2020 four professionally maintained full sized courts that are the envy of many other regional clubs.


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. On normal playing days, we wear a 'mix and match' navy blue (no jeans) and white colour code, with flat shoes.  Club shirts can be obtained from a local supplier at a reasonable cost.


The club is run by a small, active committee.  The office holders for 2020 are:
