Sandy Bay Croquet Club - Crest

Welcome to the Sandy Bay Croquet Club

Play croquet at Sandy Bay

Only a ten-minute drive or bus ride from central Hobart, the Sandy Bay Croquet Club offers an excellent experience.

However, due to its popularity and the consequent wear and tear on our lawns, we have had to cap our membership numbers. This means that our Taste of Croquet packages are also on hold. 

But don't despair - applicants for membership can go on a waiting list.

Our club encourages all members and visitors to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19, if you do not have a medical exemption. If you suspect you may be ill with any transmissible disease, please stay away until you are better.

Set in the picturesque recreational area of Lower Sandy Bay, the Club offers social games, competitions and social events. We have three superb playing lawns, all croquet equipment and a clubhouse with full kitchen facilities and toilets.We play on every day of the week, and throughout the year. Our Club plays both Association and Golf Croquet and there are opportunities for members at all levels.
