Child Protection

For those who are under 18 on the 21st November 2009:-

All member associations are reminded of the requirements of child protection for ALL WCF Championships and particularly the one cited above.

A child is any person under the age of 18 years. (United Nations: Convention on the Rights of the Child)

For WCF purposes it is interpreted that they are a child if they are under the age of 18 years on the first date of competition.

When nominating players for entry to ANY WCF event, the relevant member association must have regard to the age of the players they are nominating.  Where it is apparent that a child is being nominated they must take all steps to prevent harm and ensure their continuing safety from home, back to home.

Whilst WCF and any host association will take all reasonable steps to mitigate any perceived risk to children, neither are in a position to guarantee the overall safety of a child or assume responsibility for them whilst they are attending a WCF event.  This is particularly relevant to those periods where a child player is not actively participating.

Whenever a child is nominated by a member association, such nomination MUST be accompanied by:-

  • WCFCP Form 1 Under Age Release;
  • WCFCP Form 2 Child Protection Medical Information.

Both of these forms require the signature of the child’s parent / guardian.

The Under age release form also requires the signature of a responsible person on behalf of the nominating member association.

Only upon receipt of those forms and the nomination will the entry for the child be accepted.

Link to the forms and full WCF Child Protection Guidance

Member Associations should satisfy themselves, in dialogue with their own Child Protection Officer that the child they have nominated is of sufficient age and understanding that they look after themselves or, that they have put in place sufficient safeguarding arrangements to ensure the child’s safety is protected from home back to home.

They should bear in mind that many carriers and local jurisdictions actively prevent children from travelling alone.

Supervision of a child, from home back to home, may be undertaken by any person over the age of 18 years, such as:-

  • a designated member of the nominating member association accompanying the child acting as a Team Supervisor;
  • a parent / guardian of another child attending the event who is designated as a supervisor and who is conversant with their protective role;
  • another player who is designated as a supervisor and who is conversant with their protective role.

General:

WCF Member Associations are now invited to nominate their best available players to fill their allocation and for consideration of Wild Cards (see below).

Players nominated must be in good standing with their member association. This means that the player shall not be under suspension or be disaffiliated by a member association or one of its affiliated members or, have been advised in writing that they are not eligible by a member association or one of its affiliated members.

If any member association is NOT going to take up their allocation then an early indication of this would be appreciated.

Conditions:
Nominations will only be accepted if accompanied by:-
The Entry Fee of £30 (GBP);
A photograph and biography of the relevant player.

The photograph and biography are not required for players who previously played in any WCF World Championships from 2005.

Note:
The entry fee can be paid electronically to the WCF via the WCF Championship web page.

Wild Cards:

At this time, a total of 4 wild card places have been reserved for use by WCF.
ALL WCF member associations (Full, Associate and Observers) are invited to propose one or more players for wild cards to be allocated at WCF discretion.
Players nominated for a wild card shall NOT be stronger in playing strength than any player nominated to fill allocated places by the relevant member association.

It would be helpful to WCF if the nominating association could indicate their order of preference for multiple nominations.

Conditions:
The entry fee will be payable at a notified date if they are successful.

Climate

Melbourne lays within the southern hemisphere where the seasons are reversed to those in Europe, North America and most of Asia. Melbourne’s changes of seasons are renown for starting late, the “official” first day of summer is 21st December, but it rarely feels like summer until mid January or even later. During the summer months outdoor activities in particular the fabulous Melbourne beaches are popular with both locals and visitors.

Melbourne enjoys a temperate climate with warm-hot summers; spring and autumn are balmy and mild, the winters cool. Melbourne is seldom unbearably cold or unbearably hot, temperature extremes when they do occur see the hotter realms of the thermometer causing more problems than the colder.

There is a reputation for rain in the city, which is statistically unfounded as Melbourne receives only 50 percent of the average rainfall of either Brisbane or Sydney. Perhaps it can sometimes be a little unpredictable, however, it is a comfortable environment to be in whatever the season. In fact it is a great place to watch the seasons change, they are so clearly defined and so highly visual within the many parks and gardens of autumn and spring, giving rise to all of natures spectacular beauty and charms within the confines of a great city.

 

Changeable and windy weather may occur in November. There is often great contrast in the temperature from day to day. Warm to hot and sunny days and cold and showery days may follow each other in rapid succession. There are also some cloudy to overcast days. Nights are usually mild. Many days are windy. Most strong winds are northerly and warm, however cold showery weather with strong southerly winds can occur. The month's warmest day registers a maximum temperature of about 34ºC while the month's coldest day experiences a maximum temperature of only 16ºC. Some of the most severe storms with gales and rain have occurred at this time of the year.

In response to popular demand, an extra 16 places have been allocated for the forthcoming 3rd WCF Women's World Golf Croquet Championship in Australia, November 2009. Two countries have declined one place each so a total of 18 extra places are available. They have been allocated as follows:-

Australia - 8
Egypt - 4

New Zealand - 5

The extra nominations from those countries are expected to be confirmed shortly. Outstanding player biographies and entry fees (£30 GBP per player) are requested to be made by 1st July 2009.

3rd June 2008.

The World Croquet Federation has much pleasure in announcing that the Australian Croquet Association (ACA) has been awarded the hosting of “The 3rd WCF Women’s World Golf Croquet Championship”.

The event will be played from Saturday 21st to Sunday 29th November 2009 at the Victoria Croquet Centre, Cairnlea, near Melbourne, Australia.
There will be an expected entry of 40 players from around the world in the main event.

President of the ACA, Max Murray commented, "We are extremely pleased to be hosting this event in 2009. The last time a WCF championship was held in Australia was in 1997 and this event will give Australians the opportunity to view world class croquet. It will also provide an opportunity for the world to view the magnificent new Victorian Croquet Centre at Cairnlea, Victoria with its 12 courts and modern, spacious club rooms”.

President of the World Croquet Federation, David Openshaw said, “We are very pleased to have the third Women’s Golf Croquet Championships in Melbourne Australia and we look forward to another successful event.”

Cairnlea is home to the Victoria Croquet Association and boasts a new purpose-built facility in Melbourne's west with 12 full size courts for players of all standards and is the venue for the newly formed Cairnlea Croquet Club with a state-of-the-art pavilion. Extensive work has been undertaken on the new courts and a top dressing and laser levelling program is being implemented now. The courts are expected to be in prime condition for the event.

Locally, 93 Clubs throughout Victoria offer a variety of games with expert coaching for club members and hire their facilities for meetings, functions, and social events for their local community.

Further details of the 3rd WCF Women’s World Golf Croquet World Championship will be released in due course.

Note to Editors:
1. The current Women’s World Golf Croquet Champion is Iman El Farnsawi of Egypt who won in Dublin, Ireland in September 2007.
2. Egypt has dominated all previous WCF World Women’s and Open Golf Croquet Championships recording a clean sweep of the ten events held to date.
3. The Australians, playing at home, are expected to field a very strong team.
4. Start times will be 9.00am and finish times will be approximately 6.00 pm.
5. Planning will not be based on using artificial lighting for any matches. However, if games are delayed by inclement weather, the remaining time available may require their use, but only with player agreement.
