Club History

Founded: 1923

The City of Brisbane was divided into Shire Councils in 1923; what is now known as the Annerley district was named the Stephens Shire, hence the name, Stephens Croquet Club. The Chairman of this Shire, Mr F.A. Stimpson, a man interested in croquet, was instrumental in obtaining the north-east corner of Yeronga Memorial Park for croquet lawns.

On 15th October 1923, Mr Stimpson himself, with a horse and plough, began the venture by turning the soil. Two well-built and well-drained lawns were laid and a small clubhouse erected.
