About the Foundation

Enriching lives through Croquet

The CFA was established in 1979 as a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation promoting the amateur sport of croquet in America. Thanks to the late philanthropist Charles P. Steuber who built and donated the CFA facilities Croquet has a beautiful home of twenty courts full sized courts, plus half courts, practice areas, a building housing the CFA Croquet Museum, offices, public rooms, a dining room, lounge, kitchen, and a wonderful outdoor veranda, making it the largest croquet facility in the world. Croquet is a sport that can be played by people of all ages. It is especially attractive to seniors as a healthful sport requiring the continuing development of dexterity and strategic thinking with low impact exercise for fitness and health.

The CFA and the United States Croquet Association (USCA) work hand in hand. Both organizations serve as the national presence of Croquet, and partner with local clubs, state, and regional representatives, and individuals, to provide education, support, and host United States
Croquet Association. The USCA administers and maintains the official player's handicaps and the official rules.

The CFA is proud to work with our committees staffed by all volunteer croquet players who have dedicated their personal time to support croquet across the country.
