Sussex County Croquet Club


Club re-opens for play - see guidelines here - by Webmaster 24/12/2020 @ 17:19 

Sussex now in Tier 4

From the CA website:

The new Tier 4 areas face tighter restrictions. The government's guidance states that outdoor sports courts can remain open for individual exercise, and for people to use with others within your household, support bubble, or with one person from another household.

The CA's Coronavirus Task Force interprets this to mean that, for clubs or players in Tier 4 areas, only one game of singles should take place on a court, unless the players are members of a family group or support bubble. So:

- no visitors
- Maximum 2 players per lawn

- Only singles to be played and no interchange with other players during session

Return to croquet - Updated guidance 1st June 2020

In addition to the guidance notes of 12th May below and following the Government's announcement on 28th May and clarification from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, the CA's guidance to clubs and players has been updated, with effect from Monday 1st June in England, as follows:

1. If clubs decide that they can safely accommodate greater numbers, up to 4 people can be allowed on a court at one time to play either a game of doubles or two games of double-banked singles or a single game of singles. All players must keep 2m apart at all times unless they are in the same household. Particular care should be taken in all doubles, including alternate stroke Association Croquet and in Golf Croquet games.

2. In double-banked games players are advised to mark balls from the other game only when necessary and to use their own markers. Balls should be moved and replaced by foot.

3. Up to 6 people can be allowed on a court for coaching purposes i.e. 5 students and one coach. The coach is responsible for maintaining social distancing throughout the session.

4. A record should be kept of any non member who visits SCCC grounds.

A book to record visitor details can be found in the veranda room.

5. Croquet balls to be washed in soapy water when returned to clubhouse.

6. Social distancing and strict hygiene protocols to be followed.

7. The ball carrier handle should be wiped with sanitiser.


Return to Croquet guidance - 12 May 2020 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

IMPACT OF COVID-19   

Firstly, the club would like to thank all members for their support and ask for their continued support in these very difficult times. This is obviously subject to change at short notice, should the Government guidance change.

The Government has announced that exercise and sport with household members or with one other person outside your household is allowed in this phase of the Corona Virus.

Based on this guidance, the Committee has reviewed all of the detailed guidance, consulted with others and so long as this guidance permits, we view that offering the use of the croquet lawns is something that is good for the physical and mental well-being of our members over the coming weeks and potentially months.

Vulnerable members with underlying health conditions should continue to shield themselves at home.

There are stringent measures that must be followed if playing croquet is to be managed in a safe way.

In practical terms what we believe this means is as follows:

  1. There can be no formal “social croquet” sessions.

  2. A maximum of 2 players to a lawn* - either a game of singles or two members practising with appropriate social distancing rules.

  3. The possibility of a lawn booking system is being looked into but in the meantime guidelines for lawn use are set out at the end of this document.

  4. Play should not start until 11am each day to allow Ben and Dan to prepare the lawns earlier in the morning, and to pack up their equipment and leave the club before members arrive.

  5. Any activity should only take place where travel to and from the lawns can be done in a way compliant with social distancing rules. Players should not be travelling together unless they are part of the same household residing in the same place.

  6. Any activity should be in line with the Government’s advised social distancing measures at all times (defined by Public Health England as spending no more than 15 minutes and not within a 2-metre distance when talking to someone), including when arriving to and departing from a lawn.

  7. Avoid touching your face and, of course, observe all of the other health advice from the Government. The croquet balls should be handled as little as possible.

  8. Hand sanitisers will be available near the ball rack and hands should be sanitised before picking up the ball carrier to take it to the lawn and after returning the ball carrier to the rack.

  9. No extra-curricular or social activity should take place and the canteen will remain closed.

  10. No guests / visitors / spectators should be permitted.

(* more than two players can play together on a lawn if they are all from the same household)

Attendance and playing at a club are entirely at the discretion of members.

If members wish to use the club, members must take the following actions to help mitigate the risk of infection and to protect each other.

Especially, do not access the club if you are experiencing any symptoms of a cold or flu, in particular a cough or high temperature.

  1. Dress appropriately prior to travelling to the venue. Use of changing facilities is discouraged.

  2. Wash your hands whenever you play – before play and immediately after.

  3. Bring your own water bottles.

  4. Do not shake hands before or after a game.

As you will appreciate, we are dealing with a lot of points in a fast-changing situation.

These are uncertain and very unsettling times. We want to play our part in helping our local community stay physically and mentally healthy and as long as it is safe to do, and provided that it is consistent with Government guidance, we want to keep the croquet lawns open and available to members to use. This can only happen if everyone sticks to the guidance and practical steps set out above. We hope you all stay healthy and that we all get through these challenging times by looking to help each other where we can.

Guidelines for use of lawns

No more than two players (unless all are from the same household) per lawn either playing singles or practising individually.

Lawns will be available in two hour slots starting at 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm. Players should vacate the lawn at the end of the slot if people are waiting to play.

Priority should be given to GC play for the 11am and 1pm slots on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and to AC play on the 11am and 1pm Wednesday slots. But these times are not reserved only for that form of the game. If lawns are available at the start of the slot, people wishing to play the other form can do so for the duration of that slot.

The later afternoons, Fridays and weekends have historically been quieter so no priorities are being given for now to GC or AC.

It is likely that the 11am and 1pm slots will be more popular so members might find that there are more lawns available at 3pm or 5pm.

If you are waiting for a lawn to become free, we recommend you wait by the lawn to prevent a large group of members congregating by the clubhouse.

These guidelines will allow up to 88 members to play per day when all lawns are in use.

We will keep these guidelines under review and amend them if needed.

Please let Clive or Fiona know of any problems arising.
