The Graceville Croquet Club was formed in March 1919 at a meeting of twelve women in the Parish Hall in Sherwood. Mrs Sam Sowden was elected as the first president. As the club had no lawns members lent their lawns for games. It is thought that most of the members were wives of returned soldiers and war workers who had settled in the area.
