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


We play croquet regularly on 5 days of the week, weather permitting.  We mostly play Golf Croquet, but there are also a number of members who play Ricochet and Association.


The club has 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.
