Welcome to the Kingston Croquet Club

The Picturesque Club where Learning to Play Croquet is a Pleasure

The Kingston Croquet Club was officially opened on 23 April 1981 after three years of planning by a committee, led by the late David Johnstone, and after negotiations with the Kingborough Council who built the lawns and Clubhouse.

The Club is affiliated with the Tasmanian Croquet Association Inc. (Croquet Tasmania).  It is located 12 km south of Hobart on bus route 429 (ask driver for Kingston High School stop) and it has 2 full size courts for play.
