Social Distancing Guidelines for Croquet
Effective May 1, 2020
Amended June 4, 2020 (changes shown in RED)
The Croquet Board met April 21 to establish the following social distancing guidelines that must be followed to allow us to resume play on May 1.
The Board met again on June 1 and made the following changes to the Guidelines The TCCC members were notified of these changes on June 4 after the City and Golf Course Management reviewed them.
1) Under no circumstances should you show up for play if you are feeling poorly, have a fever, or a persistent dry cough.
2) No more than eight players are permitted to play at any one time.
3) Players must maintain at least six feet of distance between them at all times (that’s about two mallet lengths).
4) Players must stand behind the boundaries at all times unless it is their turn to play. This holds true even when seeking or giving advice from/to a playing partner.
5) No handshaking, fist bumps, hugging, etc. allowed at any time.
6) Masks are recommended.
7) Players are encouraged to bring wipes or sanitizer in case they need to touch balls or other equipment. Do not share mallets or other equipment.
8) Group captains will need to decide who plays and for how long when the groups have more than eight players.
[Deleted: When two different groups have the “on the hour” slot and the “ten past the hour spot,” team captains from the respective groups will have to decide on alternating weeks of play or sending only two players each week.] Captains also need to devise a way to set up matches without drawing cards or chips.
9) Groups are asked to show up for play right at their assigned times so as not to have more than eight on/near the court at one time.
Because these guidelines are very different than we are accustomed to, players are encouraged to gently remind others to follow them when they notice other players not complying with them. These guidelines are the MINIMUM precautions for play. All players must decide about any additional measures they think are necessary for their safety including a decision not to play.
