Some of our Bribie players saying “hello” to our wider croquet family.

 

Bribie Island Croquet Club is a “family” of over 50 regular players of all four croquet disciplines with many members playing two or three times a week.  Our members range from “social” players only to players who represent Queensland in State & national competitions.  Enjoyment of the game, coaching and skill building are an integral part of our club’s ethos.

Throughout the year our club is visited by many interstate players who have Bribie Club as a ‘must’ on their itinerary.

The club hosts friendly interclub social Gala Days and tournaments as well as club only functions.  At the base of this page is a list of any upcoming events.

Our members are friendly, welcoming and enjoy sharing their knowledge and love of this sport.

Coaching is readily available for anyone who is interested in exploring this multi faceted sport which stimulates your mind and provides exercise at the same time.

Croquet is a sport that the whole family can play and enjoy together.
