Club History

Founded: 1956

It is assumed that Isis Croquet Club, based at Childers, was formed in 1929 as, according to the Annual General Meeting held on 22nd May 1956, it was noted that it was the 27th AGM held. However the actual formation date is not really known but records start in 1933 with minutes kept from this date.

The first croquet lawn in the Isis was at South Isis at the home of the Galmstroms, who played for relaxation. The idea of private croquet caught on and Mr Wrench built a lawn at his residence at Ashby Lane. His home now belongs to Mrs Ivy King and the croquet lawn was situated where Dr Tim Lloyd-Morgan's surgery now stands. This led to the foundation of the Childers Croquet Club.
