Guidelines for Players' Expenses and International Kit

Team Events

Players are responsible for all their travel, accommodation, travel insurance, clothing, meals and other expenses with the following exceptions:

Where needed, please use the standard expenses claims form (MS-Word), or expenses claim form (Excel).

Individual Events

All players are responsible for all their own entry fees, travel, accommodation, travel insurance, clothing, meals and other expenses, but also see Grants below.

The CA will provide an England shirt to any player who is making their first appearance for England in a WCF individual event, and does not already have one.

Grants

In order to claim the grants for the overseas Ian Maugham Salver or Solomon Trophy, the Player should submit simple evidence of expenditure (e.g. receipt) on air or ship travel to the CA Office. The evidence does not have to correspond to the value of the grant. Players must claim the grant within three months of the end of the event, as otherwise it will be assumed that it is not required.

Bursaries

Players may apply to the CA for a bursary to assist with expenses, although it is noted that the general intention is that such players will be Young Person Members of the CA.

International Kit

Official England/GB croquet kit, consisting of whatever articles are considered appropriate, will be approved and updated from time by the CA Office, in consultation with the CA International Committee. The same kit will be used for AC, GC, Singles and Team events. Some items of kit may be provided to players free of charge in accordance with the CA policy described above, and any article not provided in accordance with this policy may, if desired, be purchased by the player concerned.

All players selected to play for England/GB are entitled to purchase and wear England/GB kit, and those playing in an event for England/GB shall be entitled to kit. Shirts for World Team Championship events will carry the name of the event.

The application of these Guidelines is the responsibility of the CA International Committee, who shall report to and consult with the CA Management Committee as necessary.
