CROQUET ORANGEWOOD AUSTRALIA

 

 

 

 

About Us

Croquet Orangewood Australia is a proud family run business that was founded by Tony van der Meché over 23 years ago and its heritage and craft has been passed through the generations with his daughter and son in law now passionately producing the Orangewood Croquet Sets of Australia.

Tony was introduced to croquet on his family’s lawn at 'Orangewood'. It was such a hit with everyone that he decided a set of his own became an absolute necessity. Tony soon found that Australian made sets were unavailable, and quality imports were hard to find. Since 1992 the family have been making a range of quality handcrafted Australian Croquet Sets and have a variety of them available from Traditional Sets, Competition/Club Sets, Garden Sets as well as Family Sets.

 

 

 

All our mallets are produced from naturally cured Australian hardwoods and turned by Vic Woof   pictured, here with Tony’s grandsons Oliver & Alexander. Vic’s a well-known skilled wood turner in Gippsland Victoria region with many years of experience who has been turning out quality croquet mallets for Croquet Orangewood Australia since the early 90'S                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

 

 

 

 

 

Through innovation and development Croquet Orangewood also produce Tennis Court, Bowling Green Plate Hoops Sets and our highly popular Indoor croquet/puck sets that are all locally produced.

Our Aim for Croquet

 

To introduce this diabolical and fun game to the lawns of families and friends everywhere. Homes, Schools, Clubs, Bed and Breakfasts, Country Clubs, Conference Centres, Retirement Villages, parks, indoors and out. We also encourage social players to take up the challenges at the club level.


 

All that is needed is a croquet set, a reasonably level section of lawn (as little as 8m x12m even with the odd tree), some good company and some appropriate refreshments to relax and enjoy the game.

What is Puck Croquet?

 

This exciting Croquet Orangewood innovation/invention provides a whole new range of opportunities to play croquet. This puck is similar in principal to the hockey puck. It is a 'ball' that slides. The plate hoops sit on and grip the carpet. Croquet and roquet shots work superbly and 4m x 6m or less space is all that is needed. Play it no matter what the weather or time of day.
Use the pucks on syngrass or carpet with our plate hoops. On wooden floors use masking tape or stickers to define the hoops and peg. Uses are only limited by the imagination. Use any standard or our Garden style mallets.
