Club History

Founded: 1940

Following World War 1, croquet was played informally on the Redcliffe Peninsula, most notably at a home named "Eildon", located on the corner of Earnest and Albert Streets. This
home was owned by Mrs Johnston.

The first formal club in the area was formed in 1928 and named the Redcliffe Croquet Club. In June 1956, Eildon Croquet Club was officially opened at its existing Woody
Point location. The club's name was born from the name of Mrs Johnston's home and Mrs Johnston became the club's first patron.
