The Royal Croquet club is an annual outdoor event at Birarang Marr. Here this is free for all to come and play for 10 days. We came on the last day. There are plenty of tables undercover as well as at the many bars.
This club is a pop up club offering food and drink. We were more on a health kick so we decided to stay away from the fatty foods by having cheese at the gym and then salad after a workout with proteins.
All the offerings at the croquet club were $8 (for two rice paper rolls)- $14 (for one single meal). The stalls were Mamasita, Tokyo Tina, Pippidapo, RUYI, Broadsheets bar, Pimms, Yalumbra and GAZI. The broadsheet bar had $15 cocktails and they featured many cocktails from Melbourne’s hottest venues like Le Bon Ton. We only came here for the music and the outdoor atmosphere.
It was fun watching people play polo and listen to the cool tunes from the DJ. Polo is almost like playing golf where you swing the stick and hit the ball. The ball rolls in a straight line. The how to play guide was shown at each of the playing fields.
Since it was the last day and since RUYI couldn’t sell their dumplings they decided to give it away free. It was cold and it was chilli wonton ( our favourite) and we just might go there with our Herbalife tea.
