Records tell us that Rope Quoits was played extensively throughout Britain as early as the 15th century and was introduced by early settlers to Australia at many mining centres.

The Australian Rope Quoits Council was formed in 1947 as the controlling body and to standardize equipment. There are Rope Quoits Associatons throughout Victoria competing in the Singles and Teams Championships. The oldest registered player and still playing is 86 and the youngest is only 6.
