Club History

Founded: 1950

Garden Croquet was played by about 20 friends meeting in each other’s gardens in the 1940’s. This formed the basis of the 25 foundation membership of the croquet club called The Border Croquet Club in 1949, with purple and gold chosen as their club colours.

The members of the new club were anxious to have their own lawns and club house, so fundraising began – this included monthly street stalls, card and bridge parties and croquet garden parties at private homes, plus any other activity that would bring in funds, including membership fees. Then in February 1950 land for lawns was leased from the Lands Department in Goodwin Park, Coolangatta.
