COVID and croquet: current restrictions in Victoria
Under the Victorian State Government's most recent orders, face masks are no longer required in clubhouses, and there are no limits on player numbers indoors or outdoors.
However, social play is still restricted to people who are double vaxxed or excepted (medically exempt or under 18). It is open to clubs to require everyone attending to be double vaxxed, including juniors. Clubs should be keeping a running record of players as their vaxx certificates are sighted.
Everyone attending also needs to continue to check in using the Government QR app.
Double vaccination is not required for community sport or elite groups practising, so long as the group has the practice site to themselves.
Details of the current requirements have been circulated to clubs via the updated Return to Croquet guidelines.
