CROQUET

Dunsborough and Districts Country Club has two Association size croquet courts available for play at the Club. Our members (both men and women) play croquet in mixed competition all year round – even putting on wet gear to keep playing in the winter. Visitors and beginners are made very welcome. 

All equipment required for play is available for use. Tuition is also available. 

We play SW Pennants in October and our members play Croquet West Tournaments state-wide throughout the year. 

There are various forms of croquet, from the simple to the very complex. Social (golf) croquet is a good place to start. Our regularly scheduled playing times are listed below. Many players get together to socialise in the Clubhouse after the games. Go to here for Clubhouse and bar hours.

Full members $8 per week.  Visitors / Casual $10
