Updated Return to Play guidelines for croquet in Victoria
Croquet Victoria has released updated Return to Play guidelines for croquet players in Victoria.
The guidelines take account of recently published Sport and Recreation Victoria updated Return to Play guidance. This provides detail on the COVID-19 restrictions applying to sport and recreation in Victoria, with separate sections for metropolitan Melbourne (where all sporting clubs are closed) and regional Victoria (where both play and competition are allowed for non-contact sports such as croquet).
The SRV guidance clarifies that state sporting associations are to set participation limits for sporting competitions, depending on the minimum number required for the competition. This number includes players and essential officials such as referees and coaches, but not onlookers.
Horsham: a COVID-normal season opening
Horsham Croquet Club members were so pleased to be back playing competition again. It was a most enjoyable day with 23 members in attendance. The weather was rather warm, fortunately the clouds helped us out as many worked up a sweat especially wearing the masks.
