The World Croquet Federation have approved the 5th edition of the Golf Croquet Rules and these will be used for future WCF events. The Rules update has addressed known problems with the current rules and an attempt has been made to align GC Rules with some aspects of AC Law. The presentation style of the Rules is also closer to the style of the AC Laws.
The Croquet Association are responsible for the implementation of the Rules and at present it looks like January 1st 2019 at the earliest through to March 1st 2019 at latest.
There are some significant changes which will need considering at a future Federation Club Meetings in order to amend our League Rules (if appropriate) for 2019.
