About Croquet Australia

Who We Are

The Australian Croquet Association (ACA) was formed in the Canberra in 1992. We provide the framework, policies and procedures for croquet associations and competitions throughout Australia, based on standards outlined by the World Croquet Federation as the international organising body for the sport of croquet. Croquet Australia also work to organise national competitions such as the AC Trans-Tasman Test Series and coordinate Australian Representative teams to compete overseas at events such as the New Zealand Association Croquet Open and the World Gateball Championship in Brazil.

Disciplines

  • Association Croquet

    Association Croquet (AC) is the traditional form of the popular garden game. It is best described as a ``race`` in which the players attempt to be the first to complete the course of hoops and the peg with both balls of their side.

  • Gateball

  • Golf Croquet

    Golf Croquet a highly interactive and social sport, making the game more accessible than Association Croquet to people of all experiences and abilities.
