Play opens up for double vaccinated members

Under the current Victorian Government directions, double vaccination is now opening up opportunities to play. This applies across Victoria, with no distinction between Melbourne and the regions. Croquet Victoria strongly encourages all members who are able to be vaccinated to do so.

See the updated Return to Croquet guidelines for detail.

If all players are double vaccinated or medically exempt, courts and clubhouses are now open. Numbers allowed are:

  • Outdoors: up to 500, subject to the density quotient of 1 person per 2 m2
  • Indoors: numbers are restricted only by the density quotient of 1 person per 4 m2

No-one may participate in social play who is not double vaxxed or medically exempt (noting that children under 16 are excepted).

Clubs are expected to arrange for someone to act as a COVID check-in marshal for each playing session. This role involves checking members' vaccination status and use of the QR code every time they attend to play (there is no requirement to keep a record).

Clubs are also expected to monitor the vaccination status of their employees and volunteers. Anyone who works for a club (paid or unpaid) is now required to have had one vaccination, and to have their second vaccination by 26 November. A form for recording this information has been sent to club secretaries and is available on this website.

The event was held at the Victorian Croquet Centre on 20-21 November 2021 and was televised as a ‘Freebie’ on Kayo.
