Welfare matters

Croquet welcomes everyone. Players come from a variety of backgrounds; they may be children, nonagenarians or anywhere in between; they may be beginners or internationals; and they may bring a wide range of experience, interests and needs.

The welfare of our players, volunteers, coaches, visitors, administrators and officials matters to us. Our sport provides competition and friendship, both of which have a positive impact on physical and mental wellbeing.  Everyone should be able to enjoy their croquet, in whatever form, at whatever level, in a safe environment and we all have a part to play in creating that safe, friendly, secure space.

We all have a duty to care for each other.
