Benalla Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club

Croquet

Benalla Croquet Club celebrated its 26th year in October 2016.  We are a growing group of enthusiastic players, both men and women, who love the sport, laughter and companionship involved.

In May 2017 Benalla Croquet Club took over the reins of the North Eastern District Croquet Association (NEDCA) for two years. NEDCA consists of twelve clubs from the surrounding area.

Our players enjoy playing a game in a picturesque setting in the great outdoors. We love the intellectual challenge involved when deciding on the play, the physical skills of precision and delicacy and the camaraderie involved playing both singles and doubles.
