Chester Croquet Club

The latest version of our Constitution as revised at the AGM on 8 March 2024.

The Club is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all members and visitors. As a member of the Croquet Association, the Club fully upholds and implements the Croquet Association’s Code of Conduct:

In all situations, both online and in-person, CA Members are expected to act in a reasonable and courteous manner towards others. Abuse, neglect, 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.

The CA is committed to creating a culture of zero tolerance to such behaviour.

All members of the Club are automatically bound by these rules and any breach may result in  membership being terminated.



To safeguard children under the age of 18, the Club complies with child safeguarding policies and procedures issued by the Croquet Association. Key points are summarised in the Club’s Child Safeguarding Policy which includes links to relevant Croquet Association documents. These include additional guidance on Child Safeguarding for Competitions and Other Events and on Photography, Video and Live Streaming. If any form of inappropriate behaviour is observed, suspected or reported, the Club Safeguarding Officer should be informed and an incident report form should be completed at the earliest opportunity.

In the event of any concerns or incidents regarding any aspect of conduct or safeguarding, contact the Club Safeguarding Officer:

Mavis Sellers
Mobile: 07715 050850

The Club also is committed to complying with relevant data protection legislation and a Data Protection Policy was ratified at the AGM on 2 March 2018.
