The Graceville Croquet Club on Appel Street has reached a milestone this year as it recently celebrated its centennial with a thriving membership and a refurbished clubhouse.
Established in 1919, the Graceville Croquet Club is mostly made up of female members until 1965. Today, there are over 50 active members who continue to take part in the regular Come and Play Saturday afternoon games to encourage the younger generation. The membership base has also remained steady in the last 30 years.
In 2018, the Council granted the renovation of the clubhouse to add wheelchair access, function rooms and a kitchen suitable for cooking and prepare food for the events.
Games and activities are held year-round in three of the club’s full-size courts. These lawns are also rented out to private functions like hens parties, birthday parties, team building, and other celebrations.
Located near the Graceville Railway Station and the bus stop, the club hosts the following schedule every week if you’d like to check out the activities:
9:00 to 12:00
9:00 to 12:00 p.m.

The Graceville Croquet Club was added to the Register of Significant Places in the National Trust of Queensland in 2005.
