The current St Helens Croquet Club began in 2002. It is situated at the St Helens Sporting Complex on the northern side of town. In 2021 a third green was opened, made possible by the generous donations of members and the hard work of our greenskeeper Rickie Barr.
Yearly, on the last weekend in July, our Winter Tournament is held. This is a fun weekend of playing croquet and making new friends over a BBQ lunch and a formal evening dinner (at an extra charge). The cost to visitors is $20. Members pay $5 and contribute to the catering.
Each year members play off for men’s and women’s singles and mixed doubles competitions.
Our annual subscription is $90. Playing fees are $5 with a payment of $12 per week for those who play 3 days per week. Visitors pay $7. Prospective members are allowed 3 free games.
We pride ourselves in being a very friendly club with enjoyment of playing the game a priority. Experienced members are willing to coach prospective members on how to play the game and to give less able players tips to improve their play.
In 2021 we adopted a uniform consisting of a turquoise and white polo shirt and a black jacket with a turquoise lining. A logo of a map of Tasmania with internal crossed mallets, three croquet balls and the red ball in a hoop marking the location of St Helens, was chosen from member’s designs.
