Code of Conduct


In all situations, both on-line and in person, CA Members are expected to act in a reasonable and courteous manner towards others. Bullying, harassment, discrimination, victimisation, impersonation, defamation and causing offence to others are not acceptable. If directed at young, vulnerable or minority groups, such behaviour is even more reprehensible.


Players are expected to behave in a manner which is not contrary to the integrity or reputation of the sport. This applies to all croquet-related activities from informal events, through to international events outside CA's domain.

In tournaments, players are expected to participate in the spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play, and comply with CA Tournament Regulations (or other regulations relevant to the event) and all CA Policies.

Complaints and Disciplinary Procedure

The disciplinary procedures outlined in the Constitution (Section 8 and Appendix 1) describe the various roles of clubs, federations, and the CA in dealing with the above issues. It also sets out the mechanism through which any individual, club or federation member of the CA should report any inappropriate behaviour for investigation and, if deemed appropriate, sanction.

This may include, but is not limited to:

  • Warnings;
  • Exclusion of players, teams or clubs from selection or participation in certain events; or
  • Suspension or termination of membership of the Association.
