Mosman Croquet Club

Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore) (20:42:22):

On Sunday I had the pleasure of joining with members of the Mosman Croquet Club for a very special celebration of the club's centenary. It was a picture‑perfect afternoon on the neatly manicured croquet lawns for friends and families of the club to celebrate an incredible milestone. The club's first meeting was held at Mosman Town Hall on 12 June 1924 and, 100 years later, the club continues to flourish as an integral pillar of the North Shore community and maintains a healthy waiting list for new members. The Mosman Croquet Club was founded by women, for women, and was an exclusive women's club until 1948 when, after two unsuccessful general meeting votes, it opened its doors to its first two male members. Today, 100 years after its inception, I am proud to report that women are still the cornerstone of this wonderful club. I congratulate its members and, in particular, current president Joanne Nimmons, as well as past presidents Mary Gibson and Cali Craig, who have done so much for the club over the years. I thank the Mosman Croquet Club for all it has gifted the community over the past 100 years and wish the club a happy centenary.
