We are pleased to announce that both our practice nets have now been restored and secured, and are now open for our members to use.
If you are using our nets outside of an organised training session, please stick to the 'rule of six' with a maximum of 6 people per net lane. If both lanes are in use when you arrive, please wait until one becomes free.
Upon arrival, you must check in using one of the two QR codes on display on the noticeboard at the clubhouse.
Please read through the below summary of the rules you should adhere to when using our facilities.
A summary of the covid-secure rules for training and practice
- Before attending any cricket activities or venues, all participants, officials, volunteers and spectators must self-assess for COVID-19 symptoms; A high temperature, a new, continuous cough, a loss of, or change to, their sense of smell or taste. If you have one or more of these symptoms you should not attend any cricket activity and must follow NHS and PHE guidance on self-isolation.
- People with health conditions that put them at increased risk should consider the risks of participating in cricket activity.
- Spectators are not permitted at this stage of the lockdown easing, for matches or training sessions, with some limited exceptions (including adults needing to supervise U18s in a safeguarding role - where it is necessary for them to be present, supervising adults should not mix with others from outside their household or support bubble).
