  • For all activity, social distancing of at least two metres must be maintained at all times (except between members of the same household).
  • Playing cricket individually is permitted e.g. practice of individual cricket skills or fitness activities.
  • Playing cricket with people living in your household is permitted.

The key points they ask us to share are:

  • Do not attend if you or anyone in your household displays symptoms or your household is currently in isolation (full details at the beginning of this document). 
  • Personal hygiene measures should be carried out at home before and after use of the facility. 
  • Bring your own handsanitiserwhere possible. If this isn’t possible wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after visiting the club.  
  • Travel together as a household.
  • Avoid public transport. 
  • Try not to arrive too early, aim to arrive at the start of your slot to help with social distancing. 
  • Bring your own playing/training equipment including balls. 
  • Bring your own filled drinking bottles. 
  • Avoid touching as much as possible whilst on club premises and use cleaning stations whenever available. 
  • Do not overstay your allocated time slot, you should be clear of the area by the time the next users arrive. Do not stay to socialise. 
  • Do not leave private property or rubbish behind.  
  • No spitting. 
  • No saliva or sweat should come into contact with the ball at any time. 
  • As always, the health and safety of participants is paramount - please ensure those using the nets minimise the risk of injury (wear helmets, padsetc). As well as response times being delayed this is vital to avoid any additional stress on the NHS. 
  • Encourage all users to report any infection of their household following use of the facility to allow effective contact tracing and to limit the spread of the virus.
