Consultation Draft of AC Laws

[<<] [>>] by Dr Ian Vincent
2nd October (CA Official News)

The WCF's AC Laws Committee has developed a consultation draft of the 7th Edition of the AC Laws and following a period of review by national laws / referees committees is now releasing this consultation draft for public comment. The consultation draft and other documents are available on the AC Laws section of the WCF website (WCF Home > Croquet information > Association Croquet > The Laws of Association Croquet).

Accompanying the consultation draft are three other documents:

The latter two documents are the drivers for change that began the ACLC's work on the 7th edition, but as that work progressed it became apparent to the ACLC that other issues also needed to be tackled.

A new edition of the ORLAC will be produced in due course to accompany the 7th edition.

The ACLC proposes a two month consultation period on the new draft. Following the end of this period, the ACLC will review the comments received from croquet players generally and from national Laws / referees committees. It is the ACLC's intention then to produce a new draft, to be submitted to the WCF for the formal consultation with WCF members required under the WCF's statutes.

The ACLC requests that, so far as the Nottingham lists are concerned, discussion on the draft Laws should take place on the Laws list (, which you can subscribe to here) rather than the general list. ACLC members will monitor the discussions that take place and respond as appropriate.

Comments or questions may also be sent directly to ACLC members, copied as appropriate to national laws / referees committee chairs.
