Club History

Founded: 1934

Broadbeach is a well known beachside suburb on the Gold Coast, first named in 1934, when it was a small popular holiday retreat for Brisbane residents. Now developed, Broadbeach is recognised as a prime residential suburb and a holiday destination for national and international visitors.

The Surfers Paradise - Broadbeach Croquet Club was established in 1949 with 17 members and two courts. Mrs Jeanie Gilchrist was a foundation member and the backbone of the Club for over 37 years until she passed away at the age of 89.

In 1975, because of falling membership and a stressful financial situation, the 2 courts were transferred to the Broadbeach Bowls Club and a single court and temporary clubhouse were accepted in return. By 1989 the name had been changed to Broadbeach Croquet Club and, with membership of 12 players, there was a period of transition until 1999.
