Accident Medical and General Liability Insurance for Croquet Clubs, Events and Competitions.
Croquet is a sport that involves hitting wooden balls with a mallet through hoops or “wickets” embedded in a grass playing court. Many consider the game of croquet to have originated in France but was probably first introduced to Great Britain during the reign of Charles II. Croquet became very popular in the 1860’s. Today, there are approximately 200 croquet clubs in the United States, and many colleges and university have croquet clubs, including the University of Chicago, Penn State, Harvard University and the U.S. Naval Academy. There are also many USCA (United States Croquet Associate) affiliated clubs in major U.S. cities including New York and Chicago. Although croquet doesn’t have the kinds of injuries that can occur while participating in other more high-risk sports, there can be injuries and most of them relate to the participants’ failure to properly warm up prior to playing, or from what is frequently termed repetitive movement injuries.
