Croquet anyone? Nothing says summer like a game of croquet. The cool green grass, a shimmering lake and Rippon Lea Estate's impressive estate grounds. Once the preserve of the leisured classes, the game of croquet is now open to all, as are the stunning gardens at Rippon Lea.

The Elsternwick Croquet Club & Rippon Lea Estate will host croquet on the lawns each Wednesday on November 29 and December 6, 13 and 20. The National Trust mansion is well known. But the Elsternwick Croquet Club also has an impressive history. Elsternwick Croquet Club was founded in 1911 and is proud of its history as one of the oldest clubs in Melbourne.

They are a small, friendly club and welcome new members and guests from other clubs. There will be two sessions each day, at 11 am and 1 pm, with each game running for just under an hour. You are welcome to come solo or bring your family and friends for some healthy competition. There is a maximum of 8 people per game.

Whether you're a seasoned player or new to the game, this is your chance to experience the joy of swinging mallets and strategizing on the lawn. Plus, enjoy a complimentary glass of Rippon Lea’s finest homemade lemonade.

All equipment will be provided, and a member of the Elsternwick Croquet Club will be on hand to help assist with how the game works and answer any questions. No experience is necessary; however, players must be eight years and over.

In the event of bad weather, the game will be cancelled, and a notification will be sent one hour or more before the game booking.
