Coolum Croquet Club - part of the community for over 20 years.
Have you considered a new interest? Croquet could be what you are looking for. We are a small, friendly club with our own premises (without poker machines or bar). Croquet is a low cost – low impact sport while still providing plenty of exercise.
Croquet is a sport that can be played by one of the widest ranges of ages from youngsters just able to manage to use a mallet up to people over ninety. It’s also one of the few sports where men and women compete on a completely equal footing. A typical singles game of Ricochet involves walking about 3½ km whereas a game of Golf Croquet takes just 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
Coolum Croquet Club offers three different forms of the sport suitable for all levels of experience and for players from purely social up to the highest levels of the game.
Our lawns are at Coolum off David Low Way north of Stumers Creek behind Seacove Resort / RSL.
Croquet is said to contain the thinking of chess players and the skill of snooker players while combining two human passions – taking walks and hitting things with sticks.
No special clothing is required apart from flat soled shoes. All equipment is supplied.
The club has two full sized competition lawns and a ¾ size practice/social court.
Golf Croquet: 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm, Monday and Friday
Ricochet: 8.30 am to 11.30 am, Wednesday and Saturdays
Association: 1.30pm to 4.30pm Wednesdays and Saturdays plus 2pm to 5pm Sundays
Visitors and new members are always welcome and tuition is available.
Our courts and clubhouse are available for hire for social events of any kind including birthdays, weddings and Xmas parties.
Anyone interested is welcome to come along and try Croquet free of charge both for the initial sessions and for coaching. For details phone Adrian Prince on 5448 2985, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or check the website at http://www.croquetqld.org/?page_id=45 or find us on Facebook
