Golf Croquet Competition Standard
The South West Federation League's rules for matches in the League require all the team members to have a handicap of 10 or less, although one member may have a handicap of 11. Members who played in the League last year and members who wish to lower their handicap will have the opportunity to do so in handicap games at sessions set aside specifically for this type of play. One way of achieving the necessary competition will be a croquet ladder where matches will count towards the players handicap. Coaching will be available alongside match play. Accredited handicappers are available to set players' handicaps and issue green cards. 

These sessions will be held on Tuesday mornings starting at 9:30 am. 

Etiquette and Customs

o Dress properly  Always wear flat soled shoes. Wear white or light coloured clothing, as appropriate, certainly in tournaments and for Club competitions, weather permitting.
o Before the game. By convention, the player with the lowest handicap tosses up, and is also responsible for setting up any bisques (extra turns).
o In Association Croquet play. Wait until your opponent's turn has ended before moving onto the court particularly try to avoid the hoop area to minimise wear unless you are taking a shot.
o In Golf Croquet play. Do not move forward to your next playing position until all opponents have played.
o Play as quickly as possible. Try to decide before your opponent has finished his turn what you are going to do next to avoid wasting time. In doubles matches, do not carry out unnecessarily long discussions with your partner when it is your side's turn to play.
o Call a Referee By raising your mallet vertically (with the head uppermost) if you are about to make a stroke where there is a possibility that a fault may be committed. If no independent Referee is available, then ask your opponent to watch. If you are aiming to hit a ball in the jaws of a hoop, have someone watch it to ensure that contact is made.
o Do not accept advice (or offer it), but query any point of law, if uncertain. The only person allowed to give advice to you during a game is your partner in a doubles match.
o Do not distract your opponent by walking about, talking loudly, catching his eye, etc. Do not stand directly behind him watching him shoot, or directly in front of him on the line of aim.
o Be sensitive to your opponent during matches with respect to conversation. Some players do not welcome remarks during a game. For the same reason, do not talk to any other out-players, unless they clearly welcome a chat.
o While out of play and off the court, be aware of other games taking place. Stand still if you are in the line of play on another court, or near a player about to make a shot.
